  April Fifth Movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The April Fifth Movement was a mass movement that took place in the People's Republic of China and culminated on April 5, 1976.
In response to the death of Zhou Enlai, on the Qing Ming Jie holiday, millions of people gathered around Tiananmen Square to protest government policies; they were forcibly removed in the Tiananmen incident (which should not be confused with the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989).
The April Fifth Action group in Hong Kong is named after the Movement.

 Highlights of the 2002-2003 term   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
Campbell (April 7, 2003) In a covert revival of Substantive Due Process, a divided Court, split along unusual lines, struck down a $145 million punitive damages award, terming it "excessive" enough to trigger due process protection under the 14th Amendment.
The Court clarified in this case, holding that Garceau's motion for appointment of federal habeas counsel and a stay of execution, although filed before April 24, 1996, did not qualify for exemption from AEDPA, as it was not seeking a decision on the merits of his claim, and thus was not a full-scale appeal.
The Court held that the objectives of conserving judicial resources and respecting the finality of judgments were not "promoted" by such a direct-appeal limitation, and stated that the proper course of action is to allow a 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion to be presented in a collateral proceeding.

 FindLaw for Legal Professionals - Case Law, Federal and State Resources, Forms, and Code
Race-based action necessary to further a compelling governmental interest does not violate the Equal Protection Clause so long as it is narrowly tailored to further that interest.
Because the Fourteenth Amendment "protect[s] persons, not groups," all "governmental action based on race--a group classification long recognized as in most circumstances irrelevant and therefore prohibited--should be subjected to detailed judicial inquiry to ensure that the personal right to equal protection of the laws has not been infringed." Adarand Constructors, Inc. v.
When race-based action is necessary to further a compelling governmental interest, such action does not violate the constitutional guarantee of equal protection so long as the narrow-tailoring requirement is also satisfied.
