fr - Le monde regarde l’Europe.

Action - 22 mai 2019

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 (...)

Action - 9 May 2019

In October 2018, according to the Irish Times, Ballymun was deemed to be one of the worst areas in Dublin “where widespread dumping was observed …with areas becoming more littered” “Lack of pride” was blamed for rising litter in poor areas.

es - Política, Justicia, Paz y Sostenibilidad

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 (...)

Action - 9 April 2019

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 (...)

Témoignages - 4 April 2019

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 (...)

es - Comer sencillo en Cuaresma

Action - 26 de febrero de 2019

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, (...)

en - Recycling Ambassadors

Action - 12 February 2019

Who are they?
They are committed, civic minded individuals who volunteer to help persuade more of us to recycle our household waste. At the moment 42% of Irish households have signed contracts with Waste Disposal companies. But that means 58%, or more than half of us, have not.
We have seen images of seaside beaches covered in plastic “throw-outs” bottles, fast food containers, and so on. We know about the thousands of fish species being choked or poisoned by plastic. We also have heard (...)

es - Testimonio de Acteal, 21 años después…

Action - 15 de enero de 2019

“…un clamor se ha oído en Acteal,
llanto y lamento grande : es la Iglesia de San Cristóbal
que llora a sus hijos y no se quiere consolar, pues ya no existen”
(Glosando Jer 31, 15 ; Mt 2, 18)
Testimonio, 21 años después…
Este 1° de enero se cumplen 25 años del levantamiento zapatista. Vuelvo a mis recuerdos, y me doy cuenta que la tragedia que viví hace 21 años, la masacre de 45 indígenas en Acteal, sigue siendo un genocidio olvidado por la justicia mexicana…
