Robert Jensen on Capitalism v. Christianity: A Tale of Two Cults

Challenging the conventional wisdom of many secular and religious folk. University of Texas at Austin, Professor of Journalism, Dr. Robert Jensen argues that faith in the Cult of Capitalism is irrational and that a commitment to a reformulated Cult of Christianity (along with other religious traditions) is rational as we face up to the corrosive effects of modern life on human nature and the destructive effects of modern life on nature. As inequality and ecological collapse intensify, where do we look for values based on solidarity and sustainability? This talk is part of the First Unitarian Universalist Church’s weekly Public Affairs Forum.

Great Zine On Collective Housing Strategies and Tactics

 

Communique from the Buenos Aires Support Network for Freddy, Marcelo, and Juan

 We never forget our imprisoned comrades. We don’t mystify our respect for them but neither are we indifferent to their everyday experience. Solidarity is not, as has been demonstrated on several occasions, just a beautiful word or a slogan, but a practice inseparable from our struggle. This can be expressed in many diverse ways, and there are moments when an idea takes shape with forcefulness and continuity.

El Salvador Delegation Report Back: CIPSES "Living the Change" 2011

 

Learn about the most recent solidarity delegation from the U.S. to El Salvador! In June of 2011, Austin independent filmmaker and journalist Matt Gossage went to El Salvador as a delegate of CISPES, Committee In Solidarity with the People of El Salvador.

Matt shared food, pictures, sounds and stories of the delegation and will report on the exciting political and social developments in El Salvador. CISPES' "Living the Change" delegation brought a diverse group of U.S. citizens to El Salvador to learn and experience the work of the grassroots social movements that are fighting for justice and human rights.

From funding and actively supporting the civil war from 1981 to 1992 and currently imposing its economic model on El Salvador, the United States has a close relationship and responsibility to the people there and their struggle. From environmental destruction, disastrous neo-liberal economic policies, unsustainable agriculture, lack of health care, a draconian criminal justice system and the attack of community media; the resistance in El Salvador is fighting the same systems as the resistance here in the United States.

This report-back focused not on the problems in El Salvador, but the solutions organized movements there are using to bring democracy and justice to their country. The discussion covered some of the groups and their work and how we in the U.S. can learn from the organizing being done there. After the dinner and presentation, information was shared on how we can stay involved, informed, support and stand in solidarity with El Salvador as activists in both our countries build a healthier and more just world.
