D-DRESDEN – 27-29.01: KONGRESS „UNGEHORSAM! DISOBEDIENCE!“
Auf dem Kongress in der TU Dresden wollen wir auf insgesamt fünf Podien, in zahlreichen Vorträgen, Workshops und World-Cafes Möglichkeiten zum internationalen Austausch und zur Vernetzung bieten. Zudem wird es viel Platz für kontroverse Debatten und Diskussionen zu Geschichte, Theorie und Perspektiven Zivilen Ungehorsams geben. Wir werden diskutieren, wie kollektive Regelübertritte bei Gipfelmobilisierungen, antirassistischen und queerfeministischen Aktionen, antifaschistischen Aktionen, bei Umweltpolitik und sozialen Protesten Anwendung finden. Wir werden uns — insbesondere am Beispiel von Dresden – auch mit den politischen Gegenstrategien von Konservativen in Justiz und Politik beschäftigen. Referent_innen aus über zehn Ländern werden (alle auf Deutsch) von ihren Erfahrungen bei der Parlamentsbesetzung von Wisconsin, den Protesten auf dem Tahrir Platz, den Anti-Nazi-Protesten in Dresden oder Occupy Wall Street und vielen weiteren Aktionen berichten. Wir freuen uns auf Eure Teilnahme!

VERNARD ELLER IN PORTUGUESE
Brazilian Filipe Ferrari has translated Vernard Eller’s “Christian Anarchy: Jesus’ primacy over the powers” into (Brazilian) Portuguese, accessible at http://peplozine.com/?p=44 .
The English original seems to be out of print. Eller’s book is often mentioned together with Jacques Ellul’s “Anarchie et Christianisme”, published in 1988 by the French anarchist publishing initiative Atelier de Création Libertaire. An Italian translation of Jacques Ellul’s book is available at Elèuthera, Milan http://www.eleuthera.it.
Filipe Ferrari opened also a Peplo Zine (www.peplozine.com), a forum for discussions on theology and politics, for the time being only in Brazilian Portuguese but hopefully soon also in English. Materials and suggestions are welcome at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org

FIFTH ESTATE, Detroit. Spring 2012 issue
Proudly “supporting revolution everywhere”, as the FBI sees it since, may be, 40 years, the editors devoted this issue to “revolution everywhere” with a rich variety of articles, for instance:
– Revolution: Begins at Home
– Occupy Confronts the Power of Money
– Back to 1911 -Temporal Autonomous Zone
– Biting the Apple — iPhones & iPads
– Myth of Entrapment – Eric McDavid
– Against Negation; Positively Revolting; and many many more.
Gone seem the long thorough texts for which FE was famous in the old days.
Address: Fifth Estate, POB 201016, Ferndale, MI 48220 (Ferndale is kind of a suburb of Detroit, where it all began)

ANOTHER WARRIOR CARDINAL
Letter circulating in Catholic Worker circles.
From: Emmanuel Charles McCarthy <email@example.com> Date: Sat, Jan 7, 2012 Heart Breaking News in More Ways than One Archbishop Edwin O’ Brien, former military chaplain and former Archbishop of the Catholic Military Archdiocese of the United States who to this day teaches that the Vietnam War was a war in accord with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Catholic Just War Theory – as were the war on Iraq and the war on Afghanistan – was named a Cardinal on January 6, 2012. Cardinal-designate O’ Brien was ordained a priest by Cardinal Francis Spellman, who was also an avid supporter of the Vietnam War and the Apostolic Vicar of the U.S. Catholic Military. Edwin O’ Brien’s first priestly assignment after ordination was as Catholic chaplain to the United States Military Academy at West Point. He was ordained bishop by Cardinal John O’ Conner, himself a former Catholic military chaplain with the rank of Rear Admiral, and former Chief of Chaplains of the U.S. Navy, on March 25, 1996. During that part of the war on Iraq that began on March 19, 2003, O’ Brien was the most outspoken Catholic hierarch supporting the war. From September 2005 to June 2006, while head of the Catholic Military Archdiocese, he also acted as head of the Papal Visitation to U.S. Seminaries to insure they were teaching and implementing the Gospel correctly. On July 12, 2007, when he was appointed Archbishop of Baltimore, the Baltimore Examiner described him as “Army Jump-school qualified and troubleshooter for God at Catholic seminaries and remote Vietnam War fire bases alike.” The College of Cardinals to this day remains free of infection by a single Cardinal who publicly believes and publicly teaches that Jesus’ teaching of the non-violent Love of friends and enemies is the Way of Jesus, the Way of discipleship, the only Way of doing what He did. If those in Rome, who decide who gets the red hat, could ever overcome their fear of contamination of the College of Cardinals and of the Catholic Church by Christic non-violence, and would want a few names of bishops who could be at least a token representative of an entirely acceptable and orthodox position within the Catholic Church, I would be happy to forward a few such names. After all, the selection of Edwin O’ Brien and the absence of a single non-violent Cardinal is as clear a communication of the truth that the leaders of the institutional Church believe, teach and abide by in the execution of their explicit commission from Jesus: Mt 28:20 Emmanuel Charles McCarthy firstname.lastname@example.org www.centerforchristiannonviolence.org KW: I leave the author’s further considerations away.

How to give a $$$ Donation to the (U.S.) Archdiocese for Military Services
A letter circulating in Catholic Worker circles:
On Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 3:56 PM, Jim Rauner <email@example.com> wrote: Dear friends, Perhaps some of you would like to support the Military Archdiocese also. To Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio Archdiocese for Military Services U.S.A. Dear Bishop Timothy,
I was quite surprised to receive a letter from you, since we have never had contact, and I am not a friend of the American Military. I imagine that you find it quite awkward to send out a fund-raising letter for your work at Christmas time, since the peace announced by the angels is nothing like the “peace” that the armed forces of the United States bring into the world today.
America today is losing its democratic form of government and rather rapidly turning into the kind of vicious Imperial Power that Rome was at the time that Jesus lived. None of our wars can be justified morally, since they are arrogant grabs for more and more of the resources of the world, to make our selfish style of life more luxurious, and leave others in abject poverty.
You point out that the country has been at war for 10 years placing a heavy burden on Catholic men and women, chaplains, and you bishop-shepherds ! Well, weeks before the president began bombing, the Pope spoke out in strong, clear language saying that going into this war would be immoral, illegal and unjust ! What did you and the chaplains say to form the consciences of our young men and women about an unjust war, what did the bishops of US dioceses do to educate young men and women to resist enrolling in an immoral war ? Teaching them about conscientious objection to war, about non-violent resistance to injustice and other options they have as Christians?
