BTO–Butter Tart Overload

<note to self>

Víctor_Jara-from-wpi thought that being a modern-day poet was innocuous, but chilean poet and song-writer víctor jara (1932-1973, pictured–‘The contrast between the themes of his songs, on love, peace and social justice and the brutal way in which he was murdered transformed Jara into a “potent symbol” of struggle for human rights and justice for all the victims of the Pinochet regime.’) was tortured and killed. sticks and stones may break my bones/but words can really hurt me. even lyrics.

reconciliation-from-kairosKairos says the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report reveals that ‘the federal government and corporations remain committed to building the Northern Gateway pipeline … despite the opposition of First Nations, who fear ecological damage and whose right to free, prior, and informed consent has not been honoured.’

seasonsread more about the truth and reconciliation commission report. as justice sinclair points out, the truth is hard, but reconciliation is harder. locally, on a sort-of related note (cuz this was once aboriginal), colonialism continues with a planned development called ‘seasons‘ (see thursday, below).

vanier1-by-?-from-van-sunVanier writes, ‘Today, as never before, we need communities of welcome; communities that are a sign of peace in a world of war. There is no point in praying for peace in the Middle East, for example, if we are not peace-makers in our own community; if we are not forgiving those in our community who have hurt us or with whom we find it difficult to live….  It must continually be announced so that hearts and minds are nourished.’
