Statement by William Davis, S.J., at press conference Washington, D,C., Sept. 23, 1975 [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 September 1975

Statement by William Davis, S.J., at press conference Washington, D,C., Sept. 23, 1975 After returning from the Dominican Republic, we held a joint press conference on Capitol Hill s sponsored by Congressman Herman Badillo (D-NY). What follows is my own brief statement at that time t plus a statement issued by Rep, Badillo. Finally 3 the article "Plantation Politics" will serve as good background material on the Dominican situation and its relation to U»S. business, I wish to stress the similarity between what is happening in the Dominican Republic and what we now know about U.S. involvement in Chile and elsewhere. One of the things that struck me immediately was the pattern revealed in the Dominican Republic, a pattern I had already experienced elsewhere; Chile, Guatemala, Brazil. There is an atmosphere of repression and fear in the country, fear of a government which our own government supports and encourages. Indeed, the U.S. is largely responsible for the present regime taking p...

Statement by Rep, Herman Badillo, September 23, 1975 [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 September 1975

Statement by Rep, Herman Badillo, September 23, 1975 "I am pleased to join with those speaking out against what is obviously a pattern of injustice and illegal action on the part of the Balaguer regime in the Dominican Republic. Several weeks ago a group of my colleagues in the House joined me in sending letters to Secretary of State Kissinger, Attorney General Levi and Representative Otis Pike, requesting information and action on the case of three Puerto Rican citizens who were sentenced to long prison terms for an alleged attempt to overthrow the government of Balaguer, Yesterday, I received a reply from Assistant Secretary of State Robert McCloskey saying that, and I quote, "based on reports now available to us on this case, we believe some of the information you have received is inaccurate." But what this press conference is about is proving the accuracy of the allegations that were made in our original statement. Immediatelyafter these three men were arrested, a public announc...

PLANTATION POLITICS In The Dominican Republic [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 September 1975

PLANTATION POLITICS In The Dominican Republic by Laurence Simon The following article is reprinted from New World Outlook Magazine 3 Nov.j 1973, In the lobby of the luxurious Hotel La Romana in the Dominican Republic, there is an oil painting of a shanty town. Of course it is a quaint shanty town. While no people are visible on its dirt road, one imagines that they too are quaint and full of song. The Hotel La Romana stands like a mirage against a sea of cane fields. There is a high fence around the hotel grounds but armed guards casually wave the white American past the gate. Many of the guests arrive in their private jets on a small landing strip that bisects the Pete Dye-designed golf course. Others dock their yachts at the private marina on the Caribbean. The sweet smell of molasses from the nearby sugar mill pervades the entire setting. It is so strong at times that it reminds one of a household air freshener or deodorant designed to mask some terrible reality. The hotel, sugar...

THE LIMITS OF REASON [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 September 1975

THE LIMITS OF REASON by James R. Kelly The following article is reprinted from Commonweal* Sept, 12 S 1975. Reconfronting the I lifeboat l ethic of survival Last semester two colloquia at the college caused me to reflect on the limits of rationality. I am a teacher and I should quickly say that I was provoked to question the limits of "technical reason" or "functional reason" or, simply reason separated from a vision of human purpose, since reason must never be disparaged. Even some of the mystics remind us that if there are proper limits to reason, only reason can teach us this. And, of course, only reason can teach us to discern what is the good and what is the bad fruit of mysticism. One colloquium dealt with population and the other with the world food crisis. In both cases many could see only problems. The more many knew, the less they seemed able to suggest. Intelligence was made the antinomy of morality. Thought paralyzed action. Now, no one should offer solutions merely beca...

THE INTERRELIGIOUS TASKFORCE ON U.S. FOOD POLICY [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 September 1975

THE INTERRELIGIOUS TASKFORCE ON U.S. FOOD POLICY This group was organized in January 1975 as sucessor to the Washington Interreligious Staff Council's (WISC's) Taskforce on Hunger. The organization of the * stronger and more broadly based group reflected the religious community's growing recognition of the severity of the workd food crisis. It was stimulated by the request of representatives of National Council of Churches member communions at the Graymoor Consultation in December 1974 that WISC, in consultation with others, stimulate aud coordinate the efforts of the churches to influence public policy; the declaration of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops in November 1974 that an appropriate pastoral response for the church to the world food crisis would include a program to influence national policy; and the emphasis placed on world hunger by various national Jewish agencies. The Taskforce consists of thirty Washington-based staff of about two dozen Protestant denominati...

Rep. Rodino's "ILLEGAL ALIEN" LEGISLATION [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 September 1975

Rep. Rodino's "ILLEGAL ALIEN" LEGISLATION * In late July, the Committee on the Judiciary, of the U.S. House of Representatives, reported out a bill (H.R. 8713) dealing with the "illegal alien" problem. * This bill (H.R. 8713) is expected to be taken up by the House in October. THE BILL, IF PASSED s WOULD: * Make it illegal to hire or continue to employ any alien who has not been certified by the government to be eligible for employment. All employers would have the basic responsibility for enforcement of the law. THE OFFICE OF SOCIAL MINISTRIES OPPOSSES PASSAGE OF THE BILL BECAUSE: * It will create a situation which will inevitably lead to serious job discrimination against hispanic people and other minority groups whose legal status might be called into question. * It does not provide for a meaningful amnesty (opportunity to apply for an adjustment of resident status) for aliens who have been residing in this country for several years and have established families here.

PRIESTS FOR EQUALITY [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 September 1975

PRIESTS FOR EQUALITY 3311 Chauncey PI. #3Ol Mt. Rainier, MD. 20822 Father Bill Callahan, S.J., (N.E.), Executive Secretary of Priests for Equality reports that this past month has been a wonderfully lively time. The numbers have reached 360! It's time to celebrate in a progress report. For those who have • been recently in touch, let me do a quick review from the beginning. Six Baltimore/Washington priests, among whom were Bill Michelman (Md.) and Bill Davis (Ore.), with four women consultants, came together in April. They drafted a charter of equality, put it out for comments, revised it. They asked a group of priests from across the country to join in publicly inviting all priests (deacons, priests, bishops) to endorse the charter and to work for equality for women and men. We hoped for an inviting group of 30. 75 responded! On July 21 we sent a charter and notice of our effort to the 250 active U.S. bishops. We sent a press release and charter to 250 newspapers and media services...

THE VIEW FROM HERE.... [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 November 1975

THE VIEW FROM HERE.... Ford's Trading With the "Enemy" Act Perhaps you shared with us the hope that peace would bring reconciliation and friendship between the peoples of Indochina and of the United States. Accordingly, you must be similarly saddened by the persistent hostility and international selfisolation of our government's post-war policies. Perhaps the harshest and therefore most vulnerable policy is the Ford Administration's unprecedented denial of export licenses for the shipment of some categories of humanitarian aid to Vietnam. To date, only the AFSC (American Friends Service Committee) and the Hennonite Central Committee have been directly affected, though presumably U.S. churches participating in the World Council of Churches Fund for Reconstruction and Reconciliation and Catholic humanitarian aid efforts may find themselves in the same situation. Led by conscience the AFSC Board decided to ship aid to Vietnam despite the denial of licenses. We are asking for your suppo...

THE WASHINGTON FRONT.... [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 November 1975

THE WASHINGTON FRONT.... Two major bills in this congress deal with large areas of American life and will have consequences beyond our shores. One is a very good bill. The other, exceedingly bad. The bad one, dealing with a major overhaul of the criminal code, is dealt with at length in the four following pages. S.l should be defeated and we will get back to you later when key votes are coming up. The other bill, N.R. 9005, is the comprehensive food policy bill which, for the first time, totally separates food and economic assistance from military aid. It has already moved through the House and is picking up momentum in the Senate. It is also picking up some significant amendments. On Nov.- 4th the Senate passed the Abpurezk-HeGovern human rights amendment by a voice vote. This is basicly the same amendment passed in the House under the sponsorship of Rep. Tom Harkin, the freshman from lowa. In essence, it forbids aid togo to governments which systematicly violate human rights as de...

The UP-Coming Battle Over A Federal Criminal Code [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 November 1975

The UP-Coming Battle Over A Federal Criminal Code Congress is slowly moving toward the passage of a Bill which would define the fundamental relationship between citizens and the government for years to come. The Criminal Justice Reform Act of 1975 (S.l) is an unprecedented attempt to alter and codify the federal criminal law. At present no such unified federal code exists, because the federal criminal law has simply grown, piece meal, over the past 200 years. For example, identical criminal conspiracies are presently punishable by up to five years of imprisonment under one section, by 10 years of imprisonment under another section, and by only one year under a third. No uniform congressional policy has been established for sentencing, probation or parole. The federal criminal law contains no statutory definition of "insanity", and thus the meaning of this term has been interpreted in at least five different ways by 11 federal judicial circuits. There is, then, broad agreement that a...

The Great Defense Debate That Didn't Happen [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 November 1975

The Great Defense Debate That Didn't Happen ROBERT K. MUSIL Copyright c 1975 by The Progressive, Inc. Reprinted by permission: The Progressive 408 West Gorham Street Madison, WI 53703 Novemberj 1975 The military budget surged upward again this year, despite a purported libera! Congress, detente, and the end of the war in Vietnam. At present, the Defense Department plans a budget of at least $l4B billion by 1980, a slight increase in manpower levels, and plenty of new weapons systems appear safe from serious challenge. How is this possible in a time of pressing domestic needs, inflation, and economic crisis? The chronic liberal failure to achieve significant cuts in military spending has been attributed in the press to a case of the jitters over the "collapse" of Indochina, and a case of the jingoes over the Mayaguez incident. Both explanations fail to address fatal weaknesses in the liberal argument for trimming defense spending — weaknesses that will show up again next year when th...

GRAND JURIES: The American Inquisition [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 November 1975

GRAND JURIES: The American Inquisition by: John Conyers, Jr. Reprinted from: RAMPARTS Volume 13, No. 10 Aug.-Sept. 1975 As the dust hcus settled from Watergateit has become clear that the work of Nixon and his men has not been undone . One of the most shocking chapters in the history of the Nixon years must be the Justice Department's Internal Security Division (ISD) war on dissent, waged under the leadership of now convicted Watergate felons John Mitchell and Robert Mardian. Mitchell and Mardian are gone. But their favored weapon remains dangerously intact: the grand jury turned into a devastating instrument of repression. Decades of neglect of the grand jury system and the authoritarian Organized Crime Control Act of 1970, passed overwhelmingly by Congress, have given the Department of Justice awesome powers, the dimensions and implications of which have still not generally been understood. Use of the grand jury as a weapon of harassment and repression - described by Senator Edwar...

Capitalism/justice THE ENDING OF HUNGER [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 November 1975

Capitalism/justice THE ENDING OF HUNGER To end hunger it will be necessary to "work for radical change in the economic, political and religious values and institutions of this society s " according to the statement issued in mid-September by an ecumenical consultation on domestic hunger meeting in Green Bay, Wisconsin, under the auspices of the National Council of Churches. During the four-day consultation which ended Sept. 12 s delegates from NCC member churches decided to apply for status as a new working group to meet on a regular basis through the National Council of Churches ' Division of Church and Society. The statement the consultation released will serve as the basis for future action for the group. The statement follows. The facts about hunger in the U.S. do not need to be reiterated. Our knowledge of the history of the last few years—a history which has included numerous exposes and papers on the extent of domestic hunger, Great Society programs, the War on Poverty, the c...

PROFILE OF AN ORGANIZATION: THE INTER-AMERICAN FOUNDATION [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 November 1975

PROFILE OF AN ORGANIZATION: THE INTER-AMERICAN FOUNDATION March 1976 marks the sth anniversary of the Inter-American Foundation's coming into being. The ideas it embodies were several years in the making, particularly in the U.S. Congress. In the last half of the 1960'5, the Congress increasingly criticized U.S. foreign assistance for not reaching the people who needed it and for being mis-focused on macro-economics rather than on how those people were faring. In the hope that new paths in foreign assistance could and should be made, the Congress passed on December 30, 1969, Public Law 91,175, creating the Inter-American Foundation. Its charter is broad to support: ...activities designed to achieve conditions in the Western Hemisphere under which the dignity and the worth of each human person will be respected and under which all men will be afforded the opportunity to develop their potential, to seek through gainful and productive work the fulfillment of their aspirations for a bet...
