Food as a Weapon? [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975

Food as a Weapon? The "U.S. Grain Arsenal", the October issue of NACLA's Latin America & Empire Report, explores some important questions about the U.S. grain monopoly: 0 Kissinger's use of food as a diplomatic weapon. • How U.S. government policies have contributed to the food crisis. • How the secretive grain companies operate (with a profile of the world's largest, Cargill Inc.). The "U.S. Grain Arsenal" is the first study published by NACLA's Agribusiness Project. NACLA is an independent research organization which probes the forces that shape and profit from U.S. policies. Senator James Abourezk of South Dakota says of the NACLA Report: I would certainly encourage anyone interested in U.S. foreign policy to read the Report as one of the best sources of information anywhere. Please send me copies of the "U.S. Grain Arsenal". I enclose $ . (Bulk orders may be invoiced.) Name Address Zip I would like to receive information about other NACLA publications. NACLA-West P.O...

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

THE VIEW FROM HERE... As the American Bicentennial Year opens, a bone-chilled Washington sits quietly awaiting the return to town of Congressional and Executive Department staff aids - to discover what new directions (if any) our Congressional representatives plan to undertake during this first session of Congress in the third American century. As we wait, Angola and Watergate weigh heavily upon the collective consciousness T of those few already returned. In light of the recent military defeat of thousands of American troops by the population of a far-off former French colony, and in view of the present effort of the American Executive Department secretly to finance yet another foreign military venture into Africa, responsible people here in the nation's Capitol believe that the opening of the year set aside to commemorate the revolt of the American colonists against the British Empire is an excellent time to undertake a serious evaluation of how our country may have deviated from ...

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

THE WASHINGTON FRONT... FOOD BILL: CONGRESSIONAL AND PRESIDENTIAL ACTION ON H.R. 9005 The House and Senate Conference on H.R. 9005, the International Development and Food Assistance Act of 1975, completed in November its task of harmonizing the more than one hundred discrepencies between the different versions of the bill. It had been passed by the House on September 10 by a vote of 244-155, and by the Senate on November sby a vote of 54-41. Each House accepted the Conference Report in December, following which the measure went to President Ford, who signed the Bill into law on December 22, 1975. The real struggle now will come with appropriations. Prior to the joint Conference, the Office of Social Ministries, through the Interreligious Task Force on U.S. Food Policy, sent to each conferee its recommendations for the resolution of key differences between the two versions of the bill. This Office supports the humanitarian and developmental, rather than political, uses of food aid; t...

Background Information on the Domestic Food Front [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1976

Background Information on the Domestic Food Front In recent weeks, a growing chorus of Ford Administration officials and Congressional conservatives has filled the Nation's newspapers and airwaves with allegations that taxpayers are being victimized by widespread abuses in the Food Stamp Program. Treasure Secretary Simon, in highly publicized remarks, has gone so far as to characterize the Program as "a well-known haven for the chiselers and rip-off artists." The realities of food stamp use are dramatically different. Millions of Americans, faced with soaring food prices and the worst recession since the 1930 f s, have turned to food stamps to narrow the gap between their food needs and available food dollars. These people are needy. Nearly half of all food stamp recipients live in households which earn less than $3,000 a year after tazes. Only 13% of the Program's participants are in households earning more than $6,000 annually, and nine out of ten of these households have five or ...

A Detailed Analysis of Alternative Food Stamp Legislation Proposed to Congress, with Recommended Action to Be Taken on Each Bill [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1976

A Detailed Analysis of Alternative Food Stamp Legislation Proposed to Congress, with Recommended Action to Be Taken on Each Bill As indicated above, major changes in the U.S. Food Stamp Program are expected to be enacted by Congress early in 1976. After two months of hearings, the Senate Agriculture Committee will report out a bill for action by the Senate soon after it convenes in January following the Christmas recess. The House will act on the bill in February or early March of 1976. The new law will be enacted in the midst of the above-described nationwide Administration campaign against the current Food Stamp Program. In recent months it has been asserted that families of four earning up to $16,000 a year are eligible for food stamps under the present program; that the Food Stamp Program is wildly out of control; and that the program is filled with cheaters and chiselers. The charges are absolutely false; but they have received great coverage in the mass media. Whether the new ...

JESUITS AND PUBLIC INTEREST WORK [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1976

JESUITS AND PUBLIC INTEREST WORK The Center for Science in the Public Interest is a spirited group here in Washington, co-directed by Jesuit Father A1 Fritsch (Chi.). Another Jesuit, Bill Millerd, (Md.) also works there and has done extensive basic research on the hazards of nuclear energy. They are surrounded by a team of competent laymen, some of whom are members of the newly formed Jesuit Volunteer Corps East. The projects of CSPI cover a host of items, from researching oil companies to developing suggestions for a simple life style or exposing the hazards of aerosol cans. Their recently completed study on strip mining has had a major impact, both in Kentucky and here in Washington. This study was undertaken as a result of a grant from Jesuit Missions. Along with various threats, they are getting their share of kudos, including the following editorial, which appeared in the Washington Post, Jan. 8, 1976. Do Strip Mine Laws Matter? THROUGHOUT THE YEARS of the strip mine debate in ...

THE 4TH DECREE OF THE 32ND GENERAL CONGREGATION: "OUR MISSION TODAY: THE SERVICE OF THE FAITH AND THE PROMOTION OF JUSTICE" [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1976

THE 4TH DECREE OF THE 32ND GENERAL CONGREGATION: "OUR MISSION TODAY: THE SERVICE OF THE FAITH AND THE PROMOTION OF JUSTICE" by Fr. Juan Alfaro, professor of dogmatic theology at the Gregorian University and member of the Vatican's International Commission of Theologians. Fr. Juan Alfaro's address to a gathering of Jesuits in Mexico City 3 August 21 y 1975; is of special interest because it puts the central decree of GC 32 in the perspective of the concrete problems surrounding its elaboration. Giving his opinion that the 4th Decree is something other than "a model of order and clarity in its ideas" he goes onto a strongly positive presentation of its substance. The address 3 which was printed in the original Spanish in the Mexico Province Newsbulletin _, was translated into English by the $J PtfeGS' and Information Office. In thip conference my only intention is to present faithfully the content of the Decree, fidelity does not, however, mean a simple repetition nor an exact followi...

CHILE: REQUIEM FOR THE COMMITTEE FOR COOPERATION FOR PEACE [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1976

CHILE: REQUIEM FOR THE COMMITTEE FOR COOPERATION FOR PEACE On November 11, 1975, General Augosto Pinochet sent Chilean Cardinal Raul Silva Enriquez a letter requesting that the Committee for Cooperation for Peace sponsored by the Catholic, Protestant and Jewish coiYiiuunities in Chile, dissolve itself. (N.Y. Times, Nov. 18, 1975). Pinochet in his letter to the Cardinal charged that the Committee had been an instrument "valued by the Marzist-Leninists to create problems and disturb the citizen's tranquility." The Cardinal responded that the Committee 1 s concern for human rights would continue "within church organizations and with brotherly ecumenical collaboration." The Committee for Cooperation for Peace in Chile was founded by the ecumenical community in October of 1973. Its purposes were threefold: 1) it was to provide immediate material assistance to political prisoners and to their families in the form of aid; 2) provide legal defense for political prisoners and 3) to document ...

TEE VIEW FROM HERE... [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

TEE VIEW FROM HERE... Minutes of meetings are generally boring and even the minutes of our Social Ministry Directors 1 meetings are not generally reprinted in SISYPHUS. However, due to the extraordinary importance of our December meeting, we are including an abridged version of the minutes. We met in St. Louis while Father General was present and climaxed our own meeting with a joint presentation to him and the U.S. Provincials. (The outlines we used in our presentation are appended to the minutes.) The key element in our presentation was our plan to prioritize domestic and world hunger problems as our focus for the coming year. Finally, Mr. Dick Gregory, the Black comedian-activist, was present for two days of our meeting. Some of us have been working with Dick for some time. Mr. Dan Sheehan, JVC lawyer in the national Office of Social Ministries, has successfully defended him on charges growing out of protests here in Washington; and some of us have fasted and prayed with him duri...

TEE WASHINGTON FRONT . . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

TEE WASHINGTON FRONT . . . AID TO ANGOLA On November 11, 1975 Angola, after 500 years of Portuguese colonialism, became independent. A civil war has followed as three groups of Angolans, all with a socialist orientation, vie for power to organize the country - the MPLA (Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola) led by Agostinho Neto, the FNLA (National Liberation Front of Angola) led by Holden Roberto, and the UNITA (National Union for the Total Independence of Angola) led by Jonas Savimbi. Angola is of little intrinsic interest to the United States. CIA Director Colby testified that the U.S. has no strategic interest there and the State Department's Africa Bureau has reportedly recommended that the U.S. stay out of Angola. But the Administration has nevertheless pursued a determined policy of sending funds and arms to the FNLA and UNITA via CIA channels and has stepped up aid to Zaire with the clear intention of assisting Zaire in its military support of the FNLA. It is possib...

Minutes of the Meeting of Social Ministry Directors St. Louis Dec. 8-12, 1975 [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 February 1976

Minutes of the Meeting of Social Ministry Directors St. Louis Dec. 8-12, 1975 Summary of Jos Collins ' Input The meeting opened on the morning of Dec'. Bth, with an address by Mr. Joseph Collins of the Institute for Food and Development Policy (P.O. Box 57, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY 10706). Joe began by laying out his own assumptions: that the US could feed the world, but that would not be a good world. He felt that Church groups are too often moralistic about food issues and tend to harp on poor starving children and the need for some personal sacrifice, without ever coming to grips with the politics of food. He strongly stressed the structural problems that cause hunger, noting that there is hardly a country in the world that could not feed itself; if it had internal and external policies aimed at people rather than profit. He illustrated the lack of analysis in the hunger issue by showing that even any of the so-called experts in the field today still stress "the green revolution" w...
