Ignatian Advocacy

Ignatian Advocacy meeting

I am invited to offer a draft model for and overview of ‘Ignatian advocacy’: advocacy in an Ignatian spirit, therefore relying on the ‘way of proceeding’ developed by St Ignatius Loyola that should permeate all Jesuit activities and apostolates: in this case, the practice of advocacy.
What is presented here is a ‘model’, a framework for a wide range of possible particular advocacy efforts. As such it is intentionally abstract and simplified, tidy whereas life is not tidy. Models are an aid to reflection, no more: complexities arise as soon as they are applied. Continue reading

Parliamentary hearing

Input to the Public Hearing on Business & Human Rights of the Parliamentary Commitee on Human Rights, April 16th 2009.

All organizations listed below want to stop the injustice related to business activities in developing countries. European based and/or listed companies must be hold accountable by the European Institutions for human rights abuses committed in the areas of operation. The ECCJ (European Coalition for Corporate Justice) provides legal proposals to tackle this very issue. JEO, CAFOD, IPIS, Fatal Transactions and Global Witness focus on business activities of mining corporations in the Democratic Republic of Congo and collect evidence that due to a lack of European legislation, corporate abuse against local people in mining areas continues.

Raposa do Sol

Du 26 au 27 juin, Madame Pierângela Nascimento da Cunha (Wapichana) et Jacir José de Souza (Macuxi), deux indiens originaires de la Communauté de “Terre Indigène Raposa do Sol” (Etat Roraima dans l’Amazonie brésilienne), sont en Belgique pour solliciter un appui et une solidarité internationale à leur cause. Dans ce cadre, la commission organisatrice tient à vous informer la conférence de presse qu’ils tiendront:

le 26 juin à 19 H, auprès d’OCIPE, à la rue du Cornet 51 – B-1040 – Bruxelles

Ils y présenteront les menaces et violences subies par leurs communautés suite à une campagne menée par des riziculteurs, illégalement installés dans leur territoire. Ceux-ci visent une modification du décret qui a régularisé les limites de la réserve indigène Raposa do Sol en 2005.
