An blog by a member of the Catholic peace movement, Pax Christi, to explore the nexus between contemplation and resistance. "The Christian must discover in contemplation, and in the giving of his life, those symbolic actions which will ignite the people's faith to resist injustice with their whole lives, lives coming together as a united force of truth and thus releasing the liberating power of the God within them." - James Douglass, Contemplation and Resistance.

War Crimes Documented

The following is required reading for anyone who cares about the careless slaughter of human beings. A Dossier of Civilian Casualites in Iraq 2003 - 2005 has just been released that chronicles the murder of a generation in Iraq. Naturally, the news media can't be bothered with the fact that 24,865 civilians have been killed, 18% of whom were women and children, not when Natallee is still missing. 37% of all non-combatant deaths were caused by US led coalition forces, many through indiscriminate bombing raids (also knoown as precision strikes that miraculously manage to kill only insurgents - a true high-tech wonder). Why are you still sleeping? Read the dossier at http://reports.iraqbodycount.org/a_dossier_of_civilian_casualties_2003-2005.pdf.
