August 8th Edition 2020 Special
Campaign Newsletter of the Jersey Occupation Civilian Campaign
September 2020 Edition
This year marks the 80th Anniversary for the Occupation Civilians
of the Channel Islands. 1940 - 2020
September 27th marks an extremely important date for Jewish Community
and the Occupation Civilians.
Normally the Island Governments don't officially mark this event.
Important today to face the whole Occupation Period head on.
The Campaign Lead of Jersey Occupation Civilian Campaign is
having to especially travel to Jersey " to beg the Bailiff of Jersey
for a public Silence on Liberation Day " as any " Public Silence "
on Anniversary date of June 30th ( 80th Anniversary) was dismissed
by the Bailiff and going forward.
Could this be unprecedented for a Occupation Family member to have
to do this? and travel to Jersey to seek to see the Jersey Bailiff.
It draws also attention that possibly Jersey needs a National Day
of its own, and has developed Liberation Day in recent years
as its own National Day.
The original day for the Occupation Civilians and to remember
them has become less clear in recent years.
Most nations have a independence day as the national Day
but Jersey is unique with being a Crown Dependency and
not a fully independent nation.
Liberation Day should equally truly be for the Civilians
who lived through the Occupation Period and the
Liberation of Jersey.
Call for a public Silence by the Campaign lead could
begin to re-balance matters.
