Sacerdote de Pensilvania recaba apoyo para cristianos iraquíes desplazados

Christopher Bishop (a la derecha) ayuda a distribuir alimentos a cristianos iraquíes desplazados durante su viaje a Irak en septiembre de 2015. Foto de Stand With Iraqi Christians.[Episcopal News Service] Según lo relata el Rdo. Christopher Bishop, a él le bastó una sola conversación esencial para sentir un poderoso llamado a viajar al norte de Irak como un embajador episcopal extraoficial cerca de los cristianos desplazados, cuyas vidas han sido amenazadas por el surgimiento del grupo conocido como Estado Islámico, o ISIS.Bishop compara su despertar a la crisis con el momento, años antes, cuando de repente se sintió llamado a convertirse en sacerdote episcopal. En cada momento, su vida y sus quehaceres dieron un brusco giro hacia una nueva senda espiritual.Bishop es ahora la fuerza motriz detrás de Apoya a los Cristianos Iraquíes [Stand With Iraqi Christians] que ha ido creciendo a lo largo de dos años hasta convertirse en una organización independiente sin fines de lucro con asociados internacionales y una creciente lista de ministerios. Comenzó a fines de 2014 como un esfuerzo de su congregación, la iglesia episcopal de San Martín [St. Martin’s Episcopal Church] en Radnor, Pensilvania.“No teníamos ninguna idea de lo que estaba pasando, pero teníamos el corazón dispuesto para ello”, dijo Bishop, y los miembros de la iglesia siguen participando activamente en respaldar la misión de Apoya a los Cristianos Iraquíes.Hasta el presente, la organización ha apoyado empeños de ayudar a los cristianos iraquíes con vivienda, empleo y asesoría para menores. Y Bishop, que trabajó como cineasta antes de hacerse sacerdote, ha viajado a Irak y ha filmado para un corto documental que ahora se usa para crear conciencia acerca de la situación de los cristianos desplazados.“Chris es un tipo muy talentoso, y está dispuesto a escuchar muy atentamente, lo cual es realmente un don extraordinario para trabajar en culturas que no son la nuestra”, dijo el Rdo. Robert Edmunds, funcionario encargado de asociaciones con el Oriente Medio de la Iglesia Episcopal.La Iglesia ya tenía una presencia en la región a través de la Provincia de Jerusalén y el Oriente Medio, de la cual Irak forma parte a través de la Diócesis Anglicana de Chipre y el Golfo. Las congregaciones en Estados Unidos han apoyado el ministerio episcopal en el Oriente Medio a través de la Ofrenda del Viernes Santo, que se recoge anualmente y que recauda alrededor de $350.000, explicó Edmunds.“La buena noticia es que hay personas como Chris Bishop que surgen de vez en cuando con interés y capacidad para abogar por una causa, para ser exitosos y útiles promotores de los cristianos de la región”, afirmó Edmunds. “Chris es un máximo ejemplo de eso”.Bishop, de 56 años, tiene notables antecedentes: su padre fue sacerdote episcopal en Ohio, el norte de Nueva York y Connecticut. Pero cuando era más joven dejó de ir a la iglesia considerando la fe de su padre como “un montón de tonterías”.El Rdo. Christopher Bishop le muestra a unos niños iraquíes su cámara de vídeo durante su visita al campamento de Ashti, Irak, en octubre de 2016. Foto de Stand With Iraqi Christians.Estudió cine en la universidad y, establecido en la Nueva York, llevó adelante una carera exitosa haciendo documentales y enseñando  cinematografía. Pero él también se sentía con frecuencia desconectado, observando siempre a las personas a través de una lente y rara vez involucrándose en sus vidas.Decidió dejar su trabajo en Nueva York y comenzar de nuevo en el norte de Michigan, donde su familia tenía una casa de veraneo. Entonces, a principios de 2004, se encontró con un anuncio de periódico delSeminario Teológico General de Nueva York. De inmediato, se sintió llamado al ministerio y se matriculó en el seminario.Bishop fue ordenado en 2007 y trabajó primero como sacerdote en Hoboken, Nueva Jersey, antes de convertirse en rector de San Martín en 2011.Los acontecimientos actuales en Oriente Medio estaban muy lejos de su mente. Dice que él ignoró deliberadamente el surgimiento de ISIS cuando la violencia comenzó a hacer titulares en 2014. Su punto de inflexión se produjo a finales de ese año cuando el padre de uno de sus feligreses, que había vivido y trabajado en Irak, le contó acerca del problema de los cristianos obligados a abandonar sus hogares en Mosul luego de que ISIS tomara la ciudad.Las atrocidades cometidas por ISIS contra la población local han sido tan graves que el secretario de Estado de Estados Unidos, John Kerry, en marzo de 2016, describió a ISIS como “responsable de genocidio contra grupos en zonas bajo su control”, entre ellos los cristianos iraquíes.“Su entera cosmovisión se basa en la eliminación de los que no suscriben su perversa ideología” dijo Kerry.Las raíces del cristianismo en Irak son casi tan antiguas como las de la fe misma. En la actualidad, las comunidades cristianas en Irak están concentradas en el norte, donde los católicos caldeos son el grupo más grande, según una reseña que hiciera The Economist en 2014. Ese informe citaba cálculos estimativos de que había hasta un millón y medio de cristianos en Irak antes de la invasión de EE.UU. en 2003, una cifra que desde entonces se ha reducido a unos 200.000.Muchos de esos cristianos han huido al este de Mosul, a la región controlada por los curdos en el norte de Irak, en particular a la ciudad santuario de Erbil. Su lucha con la pobreza en los campamentos es lo que movilizó a Bishop. Él los vio ignorados por el mundo exterior —incluyendo sus hermanos cristianos— y resolvió ir a Irak y saber más acerca de lo que podía hacerse.“No fue, ‘alguien debería ir y hacer algo’ “, dijo él. “No, chico, tú vas a hacer algo al respecto. Vas a ir allí”.Su congregación apoyó la misión, primero recaudando dinero y ayudando a que Apoya a los Cristianos Iraquíes despegara. Los miembros de la iglesia también respaldaron la decisión de Bishop de viajar al exterior en septiembre de 2015, el primero de sus tres viajes a Irak.Él pasó 12 días en Irak filmando lo que luego usaría para hacer ¿Dónde esta nuestro lugar? [Where Is Our Place?] con ayuda de su productor y editor Andrew Bilindabagabo. El documental de 36 minutos recoge las entrevistas de Bishop con líderes cristianos e iraquíes desplazados acerca de la vida en los campamentos, el miedo a ISIS que llevó a tantos a dejar sus casas y el daño psicológico sufrido por las familias.“Lo que está sucediendo en el Oriente Medio es un genocidio. Es limpieza étnica. Es persecución”, dice el arzobispo caldeo Bashar Warda hacia el final de la película. “Y esta tierra cuenta con muchos pueblos indígenas que les gustaría vivir pacíficamente y contribuir con el país”.En ese primer viaje de misión, Bishop también usó el dinero recaudado por su congregación para proporcionarles computadoras de tabletas a los maestros de los campamentos, una máquina de coser a una costurera, y alimento para 80 de las familias desplazadas. Apoya a los Cristianos Iraquíes contempla ahora ir más allá los socorros de emergencia para ayudar a producir un cambio significativo en la región.“Queremos estar en esto para el largo plazo”, dijo Bishop. Un ejemplo este otoño fue un proyecto de construcción de viviendas a tres horas al sur de Erbil, en Sulaymaniyah, para reemplazar las tiendas que han proporcionado abrigo insuficiente frente a los elementos. Apoya a los Cristianos Iraquíes está financiando proyectos educacionales para el Instituto Etuti, una organización de jóvenes con sede en Erbil. Y, en una incursión en el campo de la microfinanciación, se destinaron $900 para ayudar a un hombre en Erbil a establecer un nuevo negocio de hacer fotocopias.Una coalición dirigida por EE.UU. lanzó nuevos ataques contra ISIS este otoño en un intento de reconquistar Mosul, lo cual le da a los cristianos desplazados nuevas esperanzas de regresar a sus hogares en esa región.“Esa era el principal núcleo cristiano, y resulta desgarrador que tantos cristianos tuvieran que dejarlo —para irse, por lo general, a campamentos de personas desplazadas internamente…o que realmente cruzaran las fronteras de Irak”, dijo el obispo Michael Lewis de la Diócesis de Chipre y el Golfo.Él y otros líderes episcopales de la región se sienten alentados por la dedicación de Bishop a los cristianos iraquíes y se proponen coordinar esfuerzos con su grupo.Subyacente a estos esfuerzos se encuentra el deseo de estar presentes como hermanos cristianos, dijo Bishop.“Nuestro primer papel es escuchar… y caminar con ellos a través de esa horrible calamidad por la que están pasando”, afirmó.– David Paulsen es un escritor independiente radicado en Milwaukee, Wisconsin, y miembro de la iglesia de la Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Church] en Wauwatosa.Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Delbert Africa ¡Presente!

June 15, 2021

first_imgMOVE’s Minister of Defense Delbert Africa, 73, died from cancer on June 15 at home and surrounded by his family. Delbert was one of the MOVE 9, who all received life sentences following a racist Philadelphia police raid on the MOVE house and headquarters in 1978. Delbert Africa, January 2020.Delbert spent 42 years in prison after an outrageously biased trial in which he was charged with the death of a police officer. Delbert Africa was convicted despite the widely believed charge that he was shot by police during their assault on the house. Delbert Africa was finally released this Jan. 18.  Pam Africa, MOVE’s Minister of Confrontation, said, “Delbert will be remembered as a freedom fighter, an activist. An uncompromising, revolutionary freedom fighter who fought for the lives of all. When he came out [of prison], that’s how he came out. As strong as he was, mentally.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Crecientes amenazas contra hogares de los obreros

June 15, 2021

first_imgEn marzo y abril, más de 22 millones de trabajadores en los Estados Unidos perdieron sus trabajos. Hasta ahora, la tambaleante recuperación económica ha traído retornado a 12 millones, pero 10 millones de trabajadores, el 90% de ellos en el sector de servicios mal remunerados, todavía no tienen trabajo.Un edificio de apartamentos, de alquiler controlado, Washington, DC.La mayoría de estos trabajadores son mujeres. La pérdida de empleos en el sector de servicios y la educación a distancia han tenido un impacto importante en las mujeres negras y latinas; al menos 824.000 mujeres latinas han dejado la fuerza laboral desde febrero. (NYT, 3 de noviembre)Es difícil tener una imagen real de lo que está sucediendo en el mercado laboral y la economía en general porque las condiciones y las políticas están cambiando muy rápidamente. No está claro cuántos desempleados a largo plazo, (más de 26 semanas) hay, porque la tasa de participación en la fuerza laboral (el porcentaje de la población en edad de trabajar que trabaja o busca activamente empleo) es muy baja, incluso más baja que durante la Gran recesión del 2008. Para la semana que finalizó el 14 de noviembre, los reclamos iniciales por desempleo estatal estuvieron ligeramente por encima de 743.000, un salto con respecto a la semana anterior, y hubo 320.000 reclamos presentados ante los programas federales de desempleo. Esto no indica una recuperación económica real con la creación de más puestos de trabajo.El tiempo que un trabajador desempleado recibe los beneficios y lo que les sucede cuando se agotan, varía de un estado a otro. La prioridad del gobierno es evitar que los trabajadores obtengan beneficios estatales de manera fraudulenta, no garantizar que los trabajadores obtengan lo que les corresponde. En algunos estados, los beneficios de los trabajadores se han retrasado cuando sus reclamaciones se marcan erróneamente como fraudulentas.Desalojos masivos en el horizonteUna cosa está clara. Esta pandemia está afectando mucho a los inquilinos de bajos ingresos. El Centro Conjunto de Estudios de Vivienda de la Universidad de Harvard informa que más de la mitad de los inquilinos que ganan menos de $25.000 al año perdieron sus salarios entre marzo y septiembre. “Mientras que el 15% de los arrendatarios blancos en ese nivel de ingresos están atrasados, el 25% de los arrendatarios negros e hispanos están atrasados”, dijo Chris Herbert, director gerente del centro. Este es otro reflejo del racismo sistémico en la sociedad estadounidense.Habrá consecuencias económicas importantes de esta crisis. El Banco de la Reserva Federal de Filadelfia ha estimado que los inquilinos de EE.UU. deberán aproximadamente $7,2 mil millones en alquiler para diciembre. Si bien los desalojos no compensan los alquileres atrasados, sí les dan a los propietarios un atisbo de los ingresos futuros.Existe una gran posibilidad de que comience un tsunami de desalojos en enero del 2021. La Ley CARES, el proyecto de ley de alivio de la pandemia que el Congreso aprobó en marzo, prohibía los desalojos en edificios con una hipoteca garantizada por el gobierno federal: aproximadamente la mitad del mercado de inquilinos estaba cubierto.Hubo mucha confusión sobre estas restricciones. Los propietarios e inquilinos tuvieron problemas para encontrar información; Se requirió un papeleo complejo para demostrar que la imposibilidad de pagar estaba relacionada con COVID. Algunos propietarios recurrieron a desalojos “privados” (cambiar cerraduras, quitar la puerta principal, detener el mantenimiento, contratar matones), la mayoría de los cuales son ilegales porque conducen a conflictos y violencia.Los Centros para el Control de Enfermedades intervinieron y restringieron los desalojos con el argumento de que contribuirían a la emergencia sanitaria actual. Varios estados e incluso algunas ciudades aprobaron restricciones similares.Incluso en estados como Arizona y Arkansas, donde las protecciones para los inquilinos son escasas, los desalojos supervisados por la corte se redujeron drásticamente y, en ocasiones, los desalojos “privados” se revirtieron. Aún así, el Laboratorio de Desalojos de Princeton ha contabilizado más de 100.000 solicitudes de desalojo durante la pandemia en las 25 ciudades que rastrea. Sin embargo, estas prohibiciones contra los desalojos están programadas para expirar el 31 de diciembre.Hay predicciones de que se presentarán hasta 4,1 millones de casos de desalojo en el primer mes de 2021. Y la orden de los CDC y la Ley CARES simplemente pospusieron la fecha de vencimiento del alquiler; las medidas no perdonaron la deuda de alquiler.Mientras muchos inquilinos luchan por mantenerse a flote y evitar las catástrofes que traería la falta de vivienda, la gran burguesía de este país lo está bien. Business Insider (30 de octubre) estima que los multimillonarios estadounidenses aumentaron su riqueza en medio billón (millón de millones) de dólares en 2020, mientras que 40 millones de trabajadores estadounidenses solicitaron un seguro de desempleo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Self-censorship, exile or certain death : the choice faced by journalists in Ciudad Juárez

June 12, 2021

first_img MexicoAmericas Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Follow the news on Mexico News January 22, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Self-censorship, exile or certain death : the choice faced by journalists in Ciudad Juárez Reports News to go further May 13, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders and the Centre for Journalism and Public Ethics (CEPET), a Mexico City-based press freedom organisation, are today releasing the results of a joint fact-finding visit to the northern border city of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, that was prompted by the 13 November murder of Armando Rodríguez Carreón of the El Diario newspaper and a wave of violence that has forced journalists to flee into exile.A news conference is to be held today in Mexico City to present the report, the full text of which can be downloaded in Spanish.“This report highlights the terrible dilemma that the region’s journalists face – censor themselves, go into exile or risk an almost certain death that will go completely unpunished,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It also points out that the deployment of many federal personnel – civilian and military – to this major drug-trafficking stronghold has not made the city any safer and has even exacerbated the violence.”The press freedom organisation added: “The authorities have themselves become another source of fear for journalists. More than ever before, the federal government must keep a close eye on its own personnel and overcome a reluctance to accept that press freedom is threatened by these shocking levels of violence. We urge the authorities to act with resolve in ensuring protection and attention to victims, combating impunity and enforcing discipline within their own ranks.”A joint Reporters Without Borders-CEPET team met with reporters, newspaper editors and radio station managers in Ciudad Juárez in early December. The visit coincided with a surge in violence resulting from clashes between members of the rival Juárez and Sinaloa cartels and a federal government offensive against both.More 4,000 people were killed as a result of the government offensive and attacks by drug trafficking cartels in Mexico in 2008. More than a quarter of these deaths, 1,456, occurred in Ciudad Juárez alone. “We are sick with fear, we know that if they want to kill you, they will kill you and no one is there to protect you,” a journalist told the delegation. “We scared because of what we know, not because of what we publish,” another said. Eight Ciudad Juárez journalists received threatening mobile phone messages claiming to come from a drug cartel in January 2008. The messages all said, “Don’t get mixed up with the wrong people,” or something very similar. Armando Rodríguez Carreón was one of the journalists. When he reported the threat to the Chihuahua state prosecutor’s office, he was told he should leave town as there was no way of guaranteeing his safety.Rodríguez finally went back to work after a two-month break, while other journalists preferred to go into self-exile. He was gunned down on 13 November as he was taking his children to school. There were more telephone threats against journalists during his funeral the next day. As a result, the number of journalists leaving the region or the country increased.The investigation into Rodríguez’s murder was quickly assigned to the office of the special federal prosecutor for crimes of violence against the press, which was established on 15 February 2006. The handling of the case was unfortunately a classic example of how to reinforce impunity. Without any evidence to support their claim, certain local or federal officials put out the word that Rodríguez was murdered because of his links with a drug baron.Such events undermined the already shaky confidence of the public and news media in the authorities, including the federal ones, who are all suspected of being infiltrated by organised crime. Nine federal justice ministry officials were fired in 2008 for this reason, and some of them were prosecuted.As the report points out, the dispatch of 2,500 soldiers and federal officials to Ciudad Juárez has done nothing to check this unprecedented wave of violence. Direct threats from military personnel led Emilio Gutiérrez Soto, El Diario’s regional correspondent, to seek refuge on the other side of the US border in El Paso, Texas, where he is being held by the US department of immigration.In view of a situation that is seriously compromising press freedom and, more broadly, the freedoms recognised by the Mexican constitution, Reporters Without Borders and CEPET urge the local and federal authorities to:- Respect the mandate they have received from society and to take concrete steps to guarantee the public’s safety and freedom of expression.- Respect the human rights and freedom of expression of journalists, news media and society as a whole in the course of their actions against organised crime. Those responsible for human rights violations must be punished.- Either release the evidence supporting the allegations of links between Armando Rodríguez Carreón and drug traffickers or, in the absence of any such evidence, apologise to his family.Reporters Without Borders and CEPET also appeal to the Mexican and US media to show solidarity for the journalists who have been the victims of threats or violence and to support freedom of expression in their actions.

Photo courtesy Kidspace Children’s MuseumThis Wednesday, October 14, between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA) will visit Kidspace to showcase U.S. mouth painter Mariam Paré, who serves as an ambassador representing the unique talents of MFPA’s 800 artists worldwide. Mariam will meet with museum guests to demonstrate how disability does not have to be a barrier to creative ful?llment and achievement, that art comes from within and is not de?ned by how the painter holds the brush, and invite guests to try out their own mouth-and-foot painting skills.Mariam Paré was an art student when she became the victim of random gun violence. She was shot in the back by an unknown assailant and rendered quadriplegic. Undaunted, Mariam taught herself to paint by mouth and, 20 years later, has built a successful career. Like a number of her fellow MFPA artists, Mariam has achieved artistic acclaim through private commissions and exhibitions.Her portrait of actor Pierce Brosnan, an accomplished artist himself, now proudly resides in the actor’s Malibu home. More recently, Mariam has painted portrait images of her personal artistic inspirations, various iconic disabled artists, American Chuck Close and the late Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.
