PROPOSAL DICK GREGORY'S BICENTENNIAL RUN AGAINST HUNGER [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

PROPOSAL DICK GREGORY'S BICENTENNIAL RUN AGAINST HUNGER I THE REASON FOR THE RUN In 1976, all Americans are being asked to join in the celebration of the 200 th anniversary of the United States, As a member of a black minority in America, I am responding to this request by trying to focus the attention of America on the unfinished business we have before us of bringing the promise of America to those people to whom it has been denied for 200 years. To do this, I propose to personally run from coast to coast across the United States, to awaken a Sleeping America to the plight of the American people who remain poorly fed, poorly housed and poorly clothed —while America basks in its glory of affluence and bounty. As the 1976 Presidential Election Campaign begins to arouse.the political attention of America, I will attempt to stimulate Americans —from the smallest towns in lowa, to the largest cities in New York and California—to participate in this electoral process in a manner that wi...

THE U.N. POSITION ON PATTERNS OF RESOURCE USE AND DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

THE U.N. POSITION ON PATTERNS OF RESOURCE USE AND DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES In December of 1975, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger met in Paris with representatives of two dozen other nations of the world to discuss methods by means of which the wealthier developed nations could best assist the undeveloped nations of the world obtain the resources they needed to keep millions of their people from dying over the next decade. This meeting, and the Seventh Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly held earlier in 1975, called to discuss this same problem, arose as a result of the publication of the following formal statement by the United Nations in October of 1974. So as to emable readers of THE SISYPHUS PAPERS to familiarize themselves with the background of these critical discussions, we have published below the basic document underlying these conferences. We will hear more and more about the New International Economic Order. The needs of the Third World are being articul...

UNITED NATIONS ENVIRONMENT PROGRAMME [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

UNITED NATIONS ENVIRONMENT PROGRAMME Twenty-ninth session SECOND COMMITTEE Agenda item 46 The Cocoyoc Declaration adopted by the participants in the UNEP/UNCTAD Symposium on "Patterns of Resource Use 3 Environment and Development Strategies" held at Cocoyoc, Mexico 3 from 8 to 12 October 1974 1/ Thirty years have passed since the signing of the United Nations Churter launched the effort to establish a new international order, Today, that order has reached a critical turning point. Its hopes of creating a better life for the whole human family have been largely frustrated, It has proved impossible to meet the "inner limit" of satisfying fundamental human needs, On the contrary, more people are hungry, sick, shelterless and illiterate today than when the United Nations was first set up. At the same time, new and unforeseen concerns have begun to darken the international prospects. Environmental degradation and the rising pressure on resources raise the question whether the "outer limi...

Statement by the Moat Reverend Walter F. Sullivan Bishop of Richmond, on Participation of Catholic Schools in Selective Service Registration [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

Statement by the Moat Reverend Walter F. Sullivan Bishop of Richmond, on Participation of Catholic Schools in Selective Service Registration The plan of the reorganized Selective Service System to use schools as centers for its one-day registration causes me grave concern. According to the proposed plan, all males born in 1957 will be required to register with the Selective Service System. Sites for the registration in late March, 1976, will include secondary schools. In November, 1975, Mr. Linwood G. Wilhelm, the Director for Selective Service in the Commonwealth of Virginia, wrote directly to the Catholic high schools in the state and requested that they forward to him the number of males born in 1957 enrolled in the school. After considering the ramifications of this request and after consultation with the diocesan Commission on Christian Education, the Commission on Social Ministry, and the high school principals, I have decided that the Catholic secondary schools in the Diocese...

COLONIALISM AND THE PANAMA CANAL [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

COLONIALISM AND THE PANAMA CANAL It is ironic that as we approach the two hundredth anniversary of our independence, the United States is one of the world's few remaining colonial powers. Since 1945, approximately 68 provinces have been ceded sovereignty by their colonial masters. Yet our country continues to cling to its 553-square-mile enclave in the heart of the foreign country of Panama, in a manner befitting the 19th century British raj. In the fashion of its infamous East India company precursor, the Panama Canal Zone is administered by a quasi-governmental "Company," headed by a presidentallyappointed Governor. Ordinances the conduct of zone residents and employees are unilateraly promulgated by the CJrfffervior and enforced by American-paid police. Alleged violations are prosecuted by a United States District Attorney and adjudicated by a Federal District Court. Virtually all commercial enterprises and deep-water port facilities within the territory are operated by Americans...

The Wasthington Post [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

The Wasthington Post THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1975 , cr ,TjT T? CTTVT/^ 1 1? D "There is some question whether the forces of the United, States are SLrlLliiSlfN Lr ILK: equa i to a military challenge." If we want to stay at peace and we want to maintain a stable world order, then we must maintain an adequate military balance. The trends are starkly adverse over the last seven or eight years with respect to U.S. and Soviet military capability. We still have an edge in strategic nuclear power, though that will diminish as the Soviets deploy their new generation of weapons. We probably have a qualitative edge in tactical air. We have equivalent naval forces to the Soviet Union, but the demands upon us are much stronger. The great problem of the United States and its allies is the very powerful ground and attack forces and growing mobility forces of the Soviet Union that can be used around the periphery. There is some question whether the forces of the United States .are equal to a militar...

THE VIEW FROM HERE... [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1976

THE VIEW FROM HERE... Feeding the Hungry As late March winds begin to blow through the nation's Capital, the winds of conservatism are on the rise throughout the land - pressing Gerald Ford into natural coalition with arch-conservative Ronald Reagan to seek the Republican nomination for President and raising conservative Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter into the forefront of those seeking the Democratic nomination for this high office. This breeze manifests itself here in Washington, D.C., in the form of a concentrated conservative effort to cut severely the funds to be allotted to the nation's Food Stamp Program and to the Food Assistance and International Development positions of the 1976 Foreign Aid Bill. Those devoted to human values are tempted to stand "dazed" in the face of this baffling upsurge of conservatism. The McClellans, the Hruska's, the Eastlands and other old school conservatives are set to burn their brand onto American political life before their retirement at the en...

THE WASHINGTON FRONT... [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1976

THE WASHINGTON FRONT... The On-going Battle Over S-l On February 15, 1976, "moderate" Democratic Senate leader Mike Mansfield and Republican Hugh Scott recommended "that the bill number on Senate Bill 1 (The Revised Federal Criminal Code proposed by the Nixon Administration) be changed - because 'S-l 1 has become a battle cry." These moderate Senate leaders proposed that only a tiny handfull of the "most offensive" provisions in S-l be dropped - in an effort to slow the growing ranks of citizen groups aggressively opposing passage of S-l. In response to this effort by Republican and moderate Democratic leaders in the Senate, the Washington Interreligious Task Force on Criminal Justice has prepared a "List of a Hundred Horrors", setting forth in detail, at least 100 separate provisions contained in Senate Bill 1 which make its passage absolutely intolerable to freedom-loving Americans. Among the provisions which Senate "moderates" would leave in S-l are: Section 1103 - "Unlawful Memb...

THE TERRIBLE TEN [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1976

THE TERRIBLE TEN As designated by Food Day (a subsidiary of Center for Science in the Public Interest) America's food supply is in trouble. The foods themselves are high in sugar and fat, contributing to tooth decay, obesity, heart disease, and a host of other major health problems. Every few months, it seems, another common food additive is found to be harmful. And the high cost of food having risen more than sixty percent since 1972, has spelled disaster for low-income people. . . In the countryside, mechanization and corporate giantism are forcing small farmers out of business. Urbanization is wiping out over two million acres of farmland each year. And agricultural chemicals have polluted everything from the nation's water supply to mother's milk. America's food supply is controlled by a relative handful of giant corporations. According to the Federal Trade Commission, fifty companies rake in over fifty percent of the profits of the entire food manufacturing industry. These gian...

Jesuit Edits 'Simple Lifestyle' [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1976

Jesuit Edits 'Simple Lifestyle' A . Lenten Guide A book published here on Ash Wednesday, "99 Ways to a Simple Lifestyle," was written to help concerned Christians take, during the Lenten season, concrete steps toward a "new, more socially conscious lifestyle." Father Albert J. Fritsch, S.J., co-director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest here whose staff produced the 324-page guidebook following two years of research, writing and editing, cited the need for such a volume. / "The churches speak extensively about social justice and the need to simplify our lifestyles in order to show solidarity with the world's poor, and to conserve resources. What church people seem to lack is the ability to put this into practice, which means discovering how this justice can be brought about." Covering such areas as energy conservation in the home, new ways to prepare foods, community living situations, problems of over-consumption, and ways of becoming socially and politically involve...

A QUESTION OF JUSTICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1976

A QUESTION OF JUSTICE By: Fr. Daniel Berrigan, S.J. On January 19 3 1976 3 Fr. Daniel Berrigan s S.J. 3 received a 30-day jail sentence in the WashingtonD.C. county jail for participating y with nine others } in a symbolic gravedigging on the White House lam.. The action was. intended to point out the terror of the nuclear armaments stockpile. The following article is Fr. Berrigan's statement to the court. What I have to say this morning is by no means to be understood as a plea for mercy. Those who act as the ten defendants act, in ways felonious or misdemeaning, who time after time have tasted the diet of the courts, digested the regimes of prisons - and come out strengthened by that spartan diet - such I would think, have forfeited the claim to special treatment. What we can claim, according to the law, is - justice. The claim is an intriguing one, and I should like to explore it. According to the law, all citizens stand under the law. According to the law, all citizens have equa...

SOMEONE MUST HAVE THE COURAGE . . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1976

SOMEONE MUST HAVE THE COURAGE . . . by Robert C. Aldridge Re-printed from.: SIGN-February 3 1974 The Vietnam struggle is hardly an issue to most of us now. But the personal crises that it caused in the lives of many, continue to be triggered by new events. Maybe looking back at the courageous example of someone coming to grips with Vietnam in his own personal life can help all of us face those decisions we will surely be called upon, at times 3 to make. What happens when that dim consciousness grows that we are in the wrong place 3 the wrong job 3 the wrong institutional involvement? EMBODIMENT OF JUSTICE requires an interior conversion from our technological "thing-related" thinking to a mystical "people-centered" style of living. Martin Buber would say from the "I-it" to the "I-Thou." This transformation doesn't take place in one cataclysmic flash of enlightenment but is realized only through a chain reaction of career-shocking, security-threatening experiences experiences in love...

FOOD CRISIS -- MYTHS THAT PARALIZE US [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1976

FOOD CRISIS -- MYTHS THAT PARALIZE US by: Nick Eberstadt Reprinted from: THE WASHINGTON STAR Sunday, Feb. T5 S 1976 How little we know about the world food problem is frightening. There are really no accurate figures on food production for any poor country; the margin of error in the estimate for India alone could feed or starve 12 million people. Nutritionists' estimates of the "average" daily adult protein requirement have ranged from 20 grams a day to over 120. Perhaps most astonishing, we do not know the world's population within 400 million people. In short, we do not know how much food there is, how much food people need, or even how many people there are. If we wish to help the world's poor, a question which naturally arises is: Whom should we listen to for our information and advice? The sad answer seems to be that almost all our sources are inaccurate and unreliable. Because of the dearth of information and the high stakes involved (literally, control over millions of lives...

Vietnam "The principal objective of United States policy in Southeast Asia is simply to maintain the integrity and independence of the non-Communist nations in that area," Robert McNamara Secretary of Defense January 29, 1964 "Whereas the United States is assisting the peoples of Southeast Asia to protect their freedom and has no territorial, military or political ambitions in that area but desires only that they should be left in peace to work out their own destinies in their own way..." Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, Approved August 10, 1964 WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES IF WE DON'T INTERVENE? "Overnight the United States would cease to be a power in the world's greatest ocean.

TEE FEDERAL BUDGETNATIONAL SECURITY, AND A NEW FOREIGN POLICY [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1976

TEE FEDERAL BUDGETNATIONAL SECURITY, AND A NEW FOREIGN POLICY *Earl C. Ravenal February 2, 1976 SUMMARY This presentation comments on the tilted priorities in the entire Federal budget, the high and continuously rising defense expenditures, the claims of national security, and the need for a new foreign policy. The President's budget for Fiscal Year 1977 calls for $433.4 in spending authority and .$394.2 billion in probable outlays. Defense expenditures continue to rise, but almost all domestic programs are slighted. • ' VA., " ■ t The administration says that there must be "real program growth" in our military spending. But it recognizes no such minimum standard for basic human needs, for the quality of life in our country, and for the integrity of our society. Requested budget authority for defense is $112.7 billion (plus another $2 billion if we include the production of nuclear weapons in the ERDA budget and some miscellaneous defense-related activities). This is an increase of ...
