THE WASHINGTON FRONT [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1977

THE WASHINGTON FRONT Exploitation of Third World nations by large multi-national corporations touches almost every aspect of human life throughout most of the world. While the most obvious effects of this exploitation is to lower the standard of living and contribute to massive malnutrition, there is at least one example of this exploitation which causes thousands of deaths directly. Tens of thousands of babies in Africa and Latin America die each year because of infant formula sales. While the infant formula itself is not toxic, much of the world does not have the facilities to adequately sterilize bottles and procure clean water to mix with the powder formula. Consequently the death rate among infants is high. The profit generated by large sales promotion of infant formulas to poor areas is so large that large corporations like Nestles and Bristol-Myers disregard criticism on the morality of selling their formula to those who can least afford it and to whom it is most dangerous. F...

THE CHURCH AND HUMAN RIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1977

THE CHURCH AND HUMAN RIGHTS Reprinted: BLUEPRINT Vol. XXVIII 3 No. 4, December 1975 The Pontifical Commission on Justice and Peace has taken the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights to prepare this paper with the hope that it might serve as an instrument of study and reflection on the rights of the human person. The document emphasizes the fundamental importance and indivisible interrelationship between human rights and duties. "To speak of rights is the same as spelling out duties" (Paul VI, Message to the U.N. on the 25th Anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights). Persons can claim their rights only when they respect the duties which these rights imply. The basic correlation between rights and duties becomes manifest in two stages. In the first stage, the possessor of a right becomes aware of the right with its inseparable duties. In the second state, human society has the duty to recognize and respect the right of the in...

FOOD FOR WHOM? [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1977

FOOD FOR WHOM? by Joe Collins and Frances Moore Lappe Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic their histories prove that no matter how rich a country's agricultural endowment, there will be scarcity scarcity of food and scarcity of employment as long as only a few people control the foodproducing resources. - Cuba has always been a land of great agricultural potential. The 700-mile long island's fertile plains and valleys offer both opportunities for year-round farming and vast natural pastures with four to five times the rainfall of Texas pastureland. Yet before the Revolution, the majority of the Cuban people found that living in the countryside was synonymous with being hungry. Most of the population subsisted on a diet of inadequate amounts of rice, beans, two or three belly-filling, low-nutrition tubers and practically no milk, eggs, poultry, beef, fruit or vegetables.i Yet Cuba had to spend over $125 million annually, roughly 20% of its total foreign exchange earnings, to...

MODELS FOR 3RD WORLD [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1977

MODELS FOR 3RD WORLD by David Hare, S.J. There is little consensus among Third World leaders as to the best approach to cure the widening gap between rich and poor countries. There are several models which most of the world have opted for in alleviating Third and Fourth World poverty. We find these models inadequate and in the final analysis exploitive in nature. It would be beneficial to make a cursory examination of the most popular models and explain their limitations. The most popular model is rapid industrialization. Indeed, it is this model which a vast majority of Third World countries are pursuing and it is this model which the developed world supports to some degree through its economic aid. It seems only natural that the poorer countries of the world would follow this route since It was industrialization which gave the rich countries their riches. However, the industrialized nations of Europe, North America and Japan are already so heavily industrialized that they could ea...

PRESS COMMUNIQUE: UPDATE ON VIETNAM [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1977

PRESS COMMUNIQUE: UPDATE ON VIETNAM 12/76 SOCIALIST REPUBLIC OF VIET NAM OFFICE OF THE PERMANENT OBSERVER TO TEE UNITED NATIONS 20 Watersice Plaza, New York, New York ICOIO (212) 685-8001 On December 29, 1976 in New York, a number of Americans including Mr. James Forest held a press conference and made false charges that there were 200,000 to 300,000 political prisoners in Viet Nam, that a number of religious believers were repressed and that the Government of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam disregarded human rights and freedom of belief. It is an undeniable fact that the Government of the Democratic Republic of Viet Nam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam in the past as well as the Government of the (unified) Socialist Republic of Viet Nam at present are genuine representatives of the Vietnamese people, the organizers of the successful struggle for national independence, freedom and for the happiness of the entire people.

World Justice and Peace: A Challenge to American Christians [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1977

World Justice and Peace: A Challenge to American Christians Eugene Toland, M.M. Thomas Fenton,M.M. Lawrence McCulloch,M.M. A CRIPS Reprint Introduction World Justice and Peace is fast becoming a top priority on the Church's agenda. Now that we have reformed the liturgy, updated theology, begun to democratize some of our structures, and begun to allow bishops and the laity to resume their rightful place in the Church, we can at long last start focusing our attention on the world. As church people, however, it would be well to recognize some of the biases we might bring to our considerations of justice and peace. For example, we are often more comfortable with church statements and theologies of development which exhort us to be concerned about the poor than with doing the homework needed to grasp the economic, political and historical facts that underlie particular injustices. We also tend to deal with problems only at the individual, person-to-person level. Especially today when so ...

INTERNATIONAL ENCOUNTER OF CHRISTIANS FOR SOCIALISM [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1977

INTERNATIONAL ENCOUNTER OF CHRISTIANS FOR SOCIALISM I, INTRODUCTION 1. Representatives of Christian groups from different countries of Latin America, North America, Europe, Asia and Africa have come together for an international encounter. Three years after the First Latin American Encounter of "Christians for Socialism," in Santiago, Chile in April, 19 72, the current of Christians committed to the liberation struggle has extended and been strengthened in the world. Situated within this current, we have attempted to define and develop our action and thought as a point of reference for Christians in the present moment of class struggles internationally. 2. During these days we have made a political analysis of the present transnational capitalist crisis and of the popular struggles for liberation and the construction of socialism. From the perspective of our political practice we have redefined life, reflection, communication and celebration of our faith in Christ. Likewise, we-have...

THE VIEW FROM HERE . . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 April 1977

THE VIEW FROM HERE . . . During-the decade of the sixties, the liberal community became increasingly concerned that the large amount of foreign aid which the United States dispensed each year was influenced more by political and military considerations than by need. Indeed, this concern was well-founded. Even continueing through the ; seventies, until the present administration took power several months ago, the primary consideration in U.S. loans and grants was the political attitude of the leadership in each recipient nation. Consequently, socialist nations were less likely to receive aid than pro-western military dictatorships, regardless of need. In addition, the major part of U.S. aid was military, even in areas where economic conditions were catastrophic. Thus, the primary criterion for U.S. economic and military aid was American economic and military interests throughout the world. The main conduit for aid was changed in recent years, with little change in overall policy. Now...

THE WASHINGTON FRONT . . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 April 1977

THE WASHINGTON FRONT . . . In recent weeks the growing infatuation with human rights is running into a steadily sharpening criticism of the inconsistencies in our positions. Besides the inequality evident in exempting "stragegically important" nations, while picking on less important.! ones, some critics are pointing out that the human rights concern ought not distract us from the larger question of a foreign policy which backs repressive governments (some would even say creates them) as long as they don't interfere with our business interests. What about the millions of people who have their "human rights" violated daily by military regimes which we encourage and support? But one stunning victory for human rights came recently when the language of the Harkin amendment, which restricts aid to countries found to have a consistent pattern of gross violations of internationally recog&gzed human rights, was extended in the House of Representatives to the International Financ...

THE CHRISTIAN GOSPEL AND HUMAN RIGHTS: A PRAXIS PERSPECTIVE [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 April 1977

THE CHRISTIAN GOSPEL AND HUMAN RIGHTS: A PRAXIS PERSPECTIVE by Francisco F. Claver, S.J. (Alay Kapwa Lecture Series) Bishop of Malaybalay Malaybalay, Bukidnon, P.I. Feb. 13, 1976 For our basic premise can be simply, inpretentiously stated thus: thought must accompany action, action thought. Head and feet must think and walk together. Hardly a profound statement by any means. Let me put it another way: we must forever be testing ideas, not by speculation alone but by actual doing -by praxis. lam aware Liberation Theologians use the term in quite a technical way. lam not too sure I can be as technical as they. But no matter. The problem, as I see it, is not usually with the ideas themselves. We have no dearth of great, splendid ideas (the New Society for instance is such an idea). The problem is with the testing - and our capability to learn from that testing. Hence our baldly stated preoccupation - if you wish to call it that - with ideas that live, ideas that move, ideas with feet. ...

COMMITTEE FOR COOPERATION AND PEACE [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 April 1977

COMMITTEE FOR COOPERATION AND PEACE Background Early in 1974, several months after the coup in Chile, and in response to gross violations of human rights, the Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant conferences formed the Committee of Cooperation for Peace in Chile. This committee was forced to disband at direct orders of President Augusto Pinochet, in December, 1975. However, Cardinal Raul Silva insisted on the right and duty of the Church to act in the area of human rights and aid to the poor, and the committee reformed under the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, as the Vicariate for Solidarity. Today, the Vicariate carries out the programs begun by the Committee for Peace. It is often the only place the people can turn to for help. The programs of the Vicariate include: keeping records of prisoners and missing persons, and providing legal services to them and their families; giving the prisoners and their families employment making hand-crafted items which are sold outside the country; ...

HUMAN RIGHTS: THE RIGHT TO FOOD [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 April 1977

HUMAN RIGHTS: THE RIGHT TO FOOD by Rev. David Hare, S.J. The justice issue which is gaining momemtum in this decade is HUMAN RIGHTS. . Of the many chronic rights violations, the most immediate and severe is the right to adequate food. Consequently, representatives of all the major Christian religious groups in Washington have designated the hunger issue as a top priority in their efforts to influence U.S. international food policy. Estimates of death annually due to hunger range as high as 10 million worldwide, with approximately 460 million people suffering from acute malnutrition. The answer to this problem is not simple and cannot be cured in its entirety by either increased awareness on the part of the American people or by one specific piece of legislation. However, the single most effective way of combatting world hunger is through a radical change in the U.S. Food policy procedures, since the United States is the largest grain exporting nation in the world and U.S. technology...

ARE LONG RANGE CRUISE MISSILES NEEDED? [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 April 1977

ARE LONG RANGE CRUISE MISSILES NEEDED? Reprinted: The Defense MONITOR Center for Defense Info. Washington, D.C. Vol. V, #7, Sept., 1976 That cruise missiles work, and can be made to work even more lethally, is not questioned. As the editors of Jane's Fighting Ships noted last year, the cruise missile already "has altered the naval equation beyond recognition." Deputy Secretary of Defense William Clements recently termed the cruise missile "the most important program we have underway in regard to its potential." But the cruise missile program is in danger of creating its own rationale. Because technology can produce a new weapon does not mean that the weapon must be built; its military need should first be defined, and the presumed beneeits of the new weapon should be weighed against the disadvantages of using it. The Air Force Case . . . According to the Air Force spokesman, air-launched cruise missiles are needed as an "adjunct" to America's current bomber force of B-52's. They sug...

WORLD WITHOUT WAR [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 April 1977

WORLD WITHOUT WAR ISSUES CENTER Midwest Policy Statement on Arms Control and Disarmament Contending Perspectives on the Arms Race - Decision-makers in Washington and Moscow now appear to be seeking an end to the build up of strategic delivery systems. It is too soon to know what specific proposals the Carter Administration will put forward. In the fiews prevailing in the Arms Control Community, however, only limited arms control measures are considered feasible. The two prevailing positions are: Strategia Equivalence: In this view, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. should maintain a rough balance of strategic armaments sufficient so that should one side attack, enough of the other's forces would survive to assure the destruction of the attacker. Thus, U.S. strategic thinkers supporting this view, ask for a mix of US forces (bombers, ICBM's and submarines) so that the U.S. could absorb the worst possible first strike and have sufficient forces left to devastate much of the Soviet Union.

J.P. STEVENS: a STRUGGLE for ECONOMIC JUSTICE [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 April 1977

J.P. STEVENS: a STRUGGLE for ECONOMIC JUSTICE by Mary Catherine Rabbitt, s1 J.P. STEVENS is the second largest textile manufacturer in the world, 1975 sales totaling over $1 billion. J.P. Stevens has 85 plants in the US and others in six foreign countries; sixty-three of those plants are located in North Carolina. Along with other textile manufacturers, Stevens has chosen to locate its plants in the South to take advantage of lower wages, lower taxes and the lack of unionization. In a recent study prepared by researchers at the University of North Carolina, this lack of unionization was cited as a major cause of the low-wage scale in the state. The study concluded that, since the degree of unionization, influences the level of earnings in the US and 'since North Carolina is the least unionized state in the nation . . . the significant impact of these factors produces the lowest wage rates in the US." A further conclusion from that study attests to the fact that "the size of the earn...

SUMMER WORKSHOPS AND INSTITUTES NETWORK Legislative Seminar: The real workings of government at the national level is foreign to most of us, even though we are affected by it every day. Increased citizen involvement in public decision-making requires that we all become better informed about the process of enacting legislation and the ways we can be more effective in influencing that process. These are the themes of the NETWORK Legislative Seminar to be held in Washington, D.C., June 19-26. Program and registration information is available from NETWORK, 224 D. Street SE, Washington, D.C. 20003. 1977 Pastoral Institute for Social Ministry: No message of the Detroit "Call to Action" Conference was clearer than the need for the Church to become more involved in the social justice issues of our day. Such involvement is already bringing about a re-definition of ministry and the development of new structures to make ministry more effective in areas of social justice. The demands of ministr...
