Buddhist Association for Peace, Culture and Education

Linked with Chris Norwood – USA.

The origins of the SGI-USA worldview can be traced to the teachings of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, who lived some 2,500 years ago in what is modern-day Nepal. Born Gautama Siddhartha, he abandoned his sheltered, princely life and sought instead to understand the inescapable sufferings of every human being — birth, aging, sickness and death — and the means by which these sufferings could be overcome … (full text).

Programm und praktische Infos

Per mail erhalten von: Infoliste von ATTAC-Schweiz (Rundbrief anmelden oder abmelden)
Date: 27/08/2008

Zur Einführung: Das Klima spielt verrückt und treibt die Herrschenden dieser Welt zu kranken Lösungen. Die Nahrungsmittel sollen nun nicht nur die Bäuche, sondern auch die Tänke der reichen Minderheit im Norden füllen! Durch die Bankenkrise mit ihren Milliardenverlusten und „faulen” Krediten entdecken die Spekulanten jetzt die Nahrungsmittel als sicheren Wert und heizen die tödliche Maschinerie weiter an. Schon gibt es Hungerrevolten. Währenddessen foutieren sich die Eliten immer mehr um den sozialen Ausgleich. Die obersten Chefs belohnen sich selbst mit Millionengehältern und zügeln diese in Steuerparadiese, während der Anteil der Working Poor und SozialhilfeempfängerInnen zunimmt. Die Umverteilung von arm zu reich ist in vollem Gang und wird medial unterstützt. Die Reichen und Schönen werden glamourös gefeiert, während Arme und Ausgegrenzte verteufelt und kriminalisiert werden – Geits no?!

An der Sommeruni 2008 befassen wir uns mit den ideologischen, wirtschaftlichen, sozialen und ökologischen Aspekten der aktuellen Systemkrise. Wir diskutieren Alternativen und konkrete Handlungsmöglichkeiten. Denn Auswege aus der Sackgasse sind vorhanden!

SUPPORT THE ONLY ANTI-JIHADIST NEWSPAPER TO SURVIVE

Linked with Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury – Bangladesh, with Must He Die? Meet A Muslim Dissident, and with Choudhury speach to IFLAC’s writers’ symposium.

Editorial of the latest issue: The Moderate Muslim, by Lori Lowenthal Marcus. There lives in Dhaka one of the elusive souls for whom most of the world, or at least most Western politicians, have been searching: a true Islam-loving moderate Muslim who believes in brotherhood among all religions and respect for all nations by all nations. Unfortunately, it is possible that this priceless and endangered species may soon become extinct. At least since September 11, 2001, world and communal leaders have been touting the virtues of the “moderate Muslims.” The express or implicit message is always that Islam has been hijacked by aberrant radicals but if we look to, nurture and promote the moderate Muslims, all will be well with the world … (full text ed. of latest issue).

Editorial of July, 2008: The relationship between ritualism and values is inversely proportional. The more one sees a society engrossed in rituals, putting on the garb of holiness and sanctity, the less respectful it becomes of the values. It grows more concerned with image than character. Rituals often have the tendency of raising a faade, putting on a mask, covering up the real face and robbing the individual or the society off the substance. People of faith, be they Muslims, Christians, Hindus or others, often camouflage their action under ritualism to put on a cloak of sacredness … (full text).

The effort to erase the memory of a very specific part of the country’s history comes most especially from one sector of the society.
