https://sea-watch.org/en/sw-and-cpt-enforce-human-rights-eu-failed/
Neither the EU-Commission nor any European government brought about the solution for the disembarkation of the remaining 40 survivors aboard Sea-Watch 3.

Without permission she entered Italian (...)

en - Faith leaders and climate change

Action - 9 July 2019

Have faith leaders a special part to play as we face climate and environmental chaos ? It seems so. At the recent Climate Coalition lobby of Parliament in the UK which attracted over 12.000 people, there was a workshop given by a Muslim from Islamic Relief telling how he got a group of Imams together to educate them in the realities of climate change. They needed it, and apparently it was effective as a start. Why specially work on faith leaders ?
Apparently 50% of schools world wide (...)

Les deux communautés oblates de la région amazonienne - Manaus et Tapauá au Brésil - sont intimement liées à cette synodale par leurs activités pastorales dans cette église, participant à la vie des Ribeirinhos, des périphéries et des communautés où nous sommes insérés.

Citoyens chrétiens engagés, nous sommes souvent consternés par l’indifférence , le scepticisme ou les oppositions à l’Union Européenne, espace de Paix fondé sur le droit. Au moment de choisir nos représentants au Parlement Européen nous attirons l’attention sur le regard que portent sur nous nos partenaires africains, sud américains, et méditerranéens . L’unité de l’Europe , dans le respect de la diversité des spiritualités , des cultures, et des peuples , reste pour eux un trésor, dont ils rêvent (...)

en - Telling the Truth ...this Easter 2019

Action - 10 May 2019

It was over a week of non violent civil disobedience ; in the end tens of thousands took part in London, and many more elsewhere, all over the world. It was a week of disruption to traffic and normality. It was very effective. It happened because there has been a failure of politics to do anything like enough, and a failure too, to move politicians by the usual means of petitions and demonstrations. This unprecedented protest was good natured, the police response was calm and respectful (...)

Témoignages - 3 de mayo de 2019

Con la mala prensa que tiene la política y lo necesaria que es. Con el desmérito que conlleva y la alta actividad que supone. La dedicación a lo público no es sólo una responsabilidad sino una exigencia para quienes nos decimos seguidores de Jesús. Una necesidad si creemos que la apuesta por la vida es lo que sana y que ese “pasar haciendo el bien” que realizó Jesús en su época lo actualizamos tras la experiencia de la Pascua.
Las vivencias de quien escribe, alcalde de la ciudad de Villena (...)

Any contract is based on reciprocity, exchange and the recognition of the rights of each of the parties. From the Earth we receive everything, life and the means of life. Correspondingly, in terms of the natural contract, we have a duty of gratitude, to give back and to care for it so that it maintains its vital force in order to do what it has always done for us. But we broke this contract long ago.
Despite all the breaches of the natural contract, Mother Earth is still sending us (...)

30 year ago Chico Mendez, a Brazilian environmental activist, was killed. He said “at first I thought I was fighting to save rubber trees, then I thought I was fighting to save the Amazon rainforest. Now I realise I am fighting to save humanity”.
More and more earth protectors have been killed since then and in Brazil deforestation levels are approaching a critical point of no return. 2018 has been the deadliest year of record for land and environmental defenders, especially indigenous (...)

Global Catholic Climate Movement
No comer carne los viernes es parte de nuestra tradición católica. Es una forma de vivir en la sencillez y en la humildad a la que nos invita Jesús. Crecer en simplicidad por Cuaresma es un don del espíritu. Ahora, también sabemos que es una forma sostenible de vivir en la creación de Dios.
Muchos de nosotros disfrutamos de la carne y estamos agradecidos con las familias de campesinos que hacen posible que este alimento llegue a nuestra mesa. Sin embargo, (...)
