Le mariage du Prince Henry Charles Albert David de Galles – membre de la famille royale d’Angleterre et sixième dans le rang de succession au trône – et Rachel Meghan Markle, actrice américaine, a fait les gros titres du monde entier.La vidéo est disponible ici.Voici le texte du sermon de l’Évêque Primat :« La force de l’amour » — Sermonde Monseigneur Michael B. Currypour le mariage deSAR le Prince Henry de Galles & Mme Meghan Marklele samedi 19 mai 2018Et maintenant, au nom de notre Dieu aimant, libérateur et source de vie, du Père, du Fils et du Saint-Esprit. Amen.Tiré du Chant de Salomon, dans la Bible :Mets-moi comme un sceau sur ton cœur,comme un sceau sur ton bras,car fort comme la mort est amour,inflexible comme enfer est jalousie,ses flammes sont des flammes ardentes,un coup de foudre sacré.Les grandes eaux ne pourraient éteindre l’amouret les fleuves ne le submergeraient pas.Cantique des Cantiques 8:6-7Le regretté Martin Luther King a dit un jour et je cite :« Il nous faut découvrir la force de l’amour, la force rédemptrice de l’amour. Et lorsque nous l’aurons découvert, nous serons capables de faire de ce vieux monde un nouveau monde. L’amour est la seule voie. »Il y a de la force dans l’amour. Ne la sous-estimez pas. Ne versez pas dans la sensiblerie. Il y a de la force, de la force dans l’amour. SI vous ne me croyez pas, pensez au moment où vous êtes pour la première fois tombé amoureux. Le monde entier semblait centré sur vous et votre bien-aimé. Oh, il y a de la force, de la force dans l’amour. Non seulement sous ses formes romantiques mais sous toutes ses formes, toutes les formes de l’amour. Il y a un certain sens, lorsque vous êtes aimé et que vous le savez, lorsque vous comptez pour quelqu’un et que vous le savez, lorsque vous aimez et que vous le montrez, on se sent vraiment bien. On sent quelque chose de juste. Et il y a une raison à cela.La raison a à voir avec la source. Nous avons été créés par la force de l’amour. Et nos vies étaient destinées et sont destinées à être vécues dans cet amour. Voilà pourquoi nous sommes ici. En fin de compte, la source de l’amour est Dieu lui-même. La source de toutes nos vies.Il y a un vieux poème médiéval qui dit :« Où se trouve le véritable amour, Dieu lui-même est là ».1 Jean dans le Nouveau Testament le dit de cette manière :« Mes bien-aimés, aimons-nous les uns les autres,car l’amour vient de Dieu,et quiconque aime est né de Dieuqui n’aime pas ne connaît pas Dieupuisque Dieu est amour » (1Jean 4:4-8)Il y a de la force dans l’amour.Il y a de la force dans l’amour pour aider et guérir quand rien d’autre ne le peut.Il y a de la force dans l’amour pour relever et libérer quand rien d’autre ne le peut.Il y a de la force dans l’amour pour nous montrer la voie de la vie.« Mets-moi comme un sceau sur ton cœurUn sceau sur ton bras,Car fort comme la mort est amour »Mais l’amour ne concerne pas seulement un jeune couple.La force de l’amour est démontrée par le fait que nous sommes tous ici.Deux jeunes gens sont tombés amoureux et nous sommes tous venus !Mais ce n’est pas seulement pour et au sujet du jeune couple que nous nous réjouissons. C’est plus que cela.Un avocat a une fois demandé à Jésus de Nazareth de résumer l’essence des enseignements de Moïse. Et il a consulté et s’est replongé dans les écritures hébraïques du Deutéronome et du Lévitique où Jésus a dit :Tu aimeras le Seigneur ton Dieu de tout ton cœur, de toute ton âme,de toute ta pensée et de toute ta force.C’est là le premier et le grand commandement.Le second est lui aussi important.Tu aimeras ton prochain comme toi-même.Puis, dans la version de Matthieu, il a ajouté :De ces deux commandements, l’amour de Dieu et l’amour de ton prochain, dépendent toute la Loi et les prophètes.Tout ce que Moïse a écrit, tout dans les saints prophètes, tout dans les Écritures, tout ce que Dieu a essayé de dire au monde !Aime Dieu !Aime ton prochain.Et pendant que tu y es, aime-toi.Un jour quelqu’un a dit que Jésus a commencé le mouvement le plus révolutionnaire de toute l’histoire de l’humanité. Un mouvement fondé sur l’amour inconditionnel de Dieu pour le monde. Un mouvement qui oblige les peuples à vivre cet amour. Et ce faisant, à changer non seulement leur vie mais la vie même du monde.Je parle là d’une force.Une véritable force.La force de changer le monde.Et si vous ne me croyez pas, eh bien, il y a de vieux esclaves du Sud américain antebellum qui ont expliqué la force dynamique de l’amour et pourquoi il a la force de transformer. Ils l’ont expliqué de cette façon – ils chantaient des spirituals, alors même qu’ils étaient en captivité. Un de ces spirituals dit :« Il y a du baume en Galaad »Un baume guérisseur, quelque chose qui peut rectifier les torts –« Il y a du baume en GalaadPour rétablir les blessésIl y a du baume en GalaadPour guérir l’âme malade du péché »Et l’une des strophes explique en réalité pourquoi :« Si tu ne peux pas prêcher comme Pierre,Et si tu ne peux pas prier comme Paul,Raconte l’amour de Jésus,Comment il est mort pour nous sauver tous »Oh, Il y a du baume en Galaad !Cette voie de l’amour est la voie de la vie ! Ils l’avaient compris !Il est mort pour nous sauver tous ! Il n’est pas mort pour en tirer quoi que ce soit !Jésus n’a pas obtenu un doctorat honorifique pour sa mort !Il n’en a absolument rien retiré !Il a donné sa vie, il a sacrifié sa vie pour le bien d’autrui, pour le bien de l’autre, pour le bien du monde, pour nous !C’est cela l’amour.L’amour n’est pas égoïste et égocentrique.L’amour peut être sacrificiel.Et ce faisant, il devient rédempteur.Et cet amour altruiste, sacrificiel, rédempteur change les vies.Et il peut changer ce monde.Si vous ne me croyez pas, arrêtez-vous un instant pour réfléchir ou imaginer.Réfléchissez et imaginez.Réfléchissez et imaginez un monde où l’amour est la seule voie.Imaginez nos foyers et nos familles où l’amour est la seule voie.Imaginez les quartiers et les communautés où l’amour est la seule voie.Imaginez nos gouvernements et nos nations où l’amour est la seule voie.Imaginez les entreprises et le commerce où l’amour est la seule voie.Imaginez ce vieux monde fatigué où l’amour est la seule voie.Si l’amour est la voie altruiste, sacrificielle, rédemptrice.Si l’amour est la seule voie, plus aucun enfant au monde n’ira au lit le ventre vide.Si l’amour est la seule voie, nous laisserons la justice couler comme un fleuve majestueux et la droiture comme un ruisseau intarissable.Si l’amour est la seule voie, la pauvreté sera reléguée au passé.Si l’amour est la seule voie, la terre deviendra un sanctuaire.Si l’amour est la seule voie, nous déposerons nos épées et nos boucliers sur la berge pour ne plus étudier la guerre.Si l’amour est la seule voie, il y aura une abondance d’espace. Une abondance d’espace. Pour tous les enfants de Dieu.Et si l’amour est la seule voie, nous nous traiterons les uns les autres – comme si nous étions en fait une famille.Si l’amour est la seule voie, nous savons que Dieu est la source de nous tous et que nous sommes frères et sœurs. Les enfants de Dieu.Mes frères et sœurs, c’est un nouveau paradis, une nouvelle terre, un nouveau monde.Une nouvelle famille humaine.Et laissez-moi vous dire une chose, le vieux Salomon avait raison dans l’Ancien Testament, c’est du feu.Teilhard de Chardin – et sur ces paroles, je vais m’asseoir, il nous faut tous vous marier.Le Jésuite français Teilhard de Chardin était sans conteste l’un des plus grands penseurs, des plus grands esprits du 20ème siècle. Un prêtre catholique jésuite, un scientifique, un savant, un mystique. Dans l’un de ses écrits il a dit, fort de son expérience scientifique et son expérience théologique. Dans certains de ses écrits il a dit, comme d’autres l’ont fait, que la découverte, l’invention ou la maîtrise du feu était l’une des plus grandes découvertes scientifiques et technologiques de toute l’histoire de l’humanité.Le feu a dans une large mesure rendu possible la civilisation humaine.Le feu nous a permis de cuire les aliments et d’introduire l’hygiène dans la cuisine, ce qui a réduit en son temps la propagation des maladies.Le feu nous a permis de chauffer et de réchauffer les environnements et a par là même rendu possible la migration humaine à travers le monde, même dans les climats plus froids.Le feu a rendu cela possible – il n’y aurait pas d’Âge de Bronze sans le feu. Pas d’Âge de Fer sans le feu. Pas de révolution industrielle sans le feu.Les progrès de la science et de la technologie dépendent en grande partie de l’aptitude et de la capacité humaines de maîtriser le feu et de l’utiliser pour le bien de l’être humain.Quelqu’un est-il venu en voiture ici aujourd’hui ? En automobile ?Hochez la tête si c’est le cas, je suppose, je sais qu’il y avait des calèches.Pour ceux d’entre nous qui sommes venus en voiture, le feu, le feu contrôlé, maîtrisé, a rendu cela possible.Je sais que la Bible dit, et je le crois, que Jésus a marché sur l’eau mais je dois vous le dire, je n’ai pas traversé l’Océan atlantique à pied pour venir ici !Le feu contrôlé dans cet avion est ce qui m’a amené ici !Le feu est ce qui nous permet de communiquer par texto, Tweet, courriel, Instagram et Facebook et d’être socialement dysfonctionnels les uns avec les autres !Le feu a rendu tout cela possible !Et de Chardin a dit que le feu était l’une des plus grandes découvertes de toute l’histoire de l’humanité.Puis il a ajouté que si jamais l’humanité arrivait à nouveau à maîtriser l’énergie du feu, si jamais l’humanité saisissait l’énergie de l’amour, ce serait la seconde fois de l’histoire que nous découvririons le feu.Martin Luther King avait raison.Il nous faut découvrir l’amour.La force rédemptrice de l’amour.Et si nous y parvenons, nous ferons de ce vieux monde un nouveau monde.Mon frère, ma sœur,Que Dieu vous aime, que Dieu vous bénisse.Et que Dieu nous garde tousdans ces mains toutes-puissantes d’amour.

The Levitt House is located in the residential estate La Moraleja (Alcobendas). It was originally built in 1983 and it was two stories high. The expansion of the building (which is now 108 m2 larger) follows sustainability criteria and uses the 3 pre-existing materials of the home -concrete tiles, wood and face brick- to achieve a new and modern design.Save this picture!© David FrutosIn order to do the expansion, the house was demolished except for three of the four façades, 25% of the deck and the first-floor slab. Afterward, the house grew towards the interior garden in the plot. Thanks to this expansion and the new design of the stairs, a new floor is built undercover. Regarding the sustainability criteria, the new façade of the expansion is built with energy savings in mind.Save this picture!© David FrutosSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© David FrutosThe windows capture the warmth during the winter, but also allow cross ventilation during the summer. To achieve complete solar control, wooden shutters have been installed to guarantee privacy and safety for the inhabitants. Lastly, both the structure and this façade -and the carpentry- have been built with wood, a sustainable material.Save this picture!© David FrutosOther energy-saving systems found in the house are the over-insulation and the installation of an aero-termic machine for climatization with the support of solar panels for the production of hot water. The interior design features a full redistribution with the stairs as the central backbone of the building, allowing views of the whole house from the living room on the third floor.Save this picture!© David FrutosSave this picture!Save this picture!© David FrutosProject gallerySee allShow lessVilla V / Paul de Ruiter ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBus Station Tilburg / architectenbureau cepezedSelected Projects Share Spain Architects: CSO arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeCSO arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationAlcobendasSpainPublished on October 12, 2019Cite: “Levitt House La Moraleja / CSO arquitectura” [Casa Levitt La Moraleja / CSO arquitectura] 12 Oct 2019.

Disability groups sue for elevator access

first_imgWheelchair users chant “Accessibility is a right!”Led by the Center for Independence of the Disabled, New York, several individual plaintiffs and other disability rights’ organizations joined forces March 5 to sue the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, New York City Transit and the city of New York for elevator access to each and every subway station in the city.Of the 472 stations, currently only 110 have elevators, making New York’s transit system the least accessible in the entire nation. In addition, the rate of repair of broken elevators is abysmal, so not all 110 stations are usable at any given time. An average of 25 elevators break down each day. Not all subway lines that go through a station are accessible. For instance, a wheelchair user cannot get on the 4, 5 or 6 trains at the busy Union Square station in Manhattan, despite the fact that the station itself is accessible.The court hearing on March 5 was preceded by a rousing 9 a.m. rally and press conference co-sponsored by Rise and Resist, CIDNY, the People’s MTA and Diversability, in front of the 60 Centre St. courthouse. Speaker after speaker denounced the lack of access to the city’s subway system. Wheelchair users are directly affected, but so are parents with strollers, disabled children going to school, seniors, riders struggling with heavy packages, workers with an injury who have to use crutches or other assistive devices, and workers who are just plain tired.The MTA has also reduced the number of litter baskets on the platforms because they cannot be easily emptied by MTA workers when there’s no elevator to carry heavy bags up to the street. This was done at the height of a campaign against litter, which causes track fires.Shouts of “Accessibility Is a Right!” echoed throughout the area. Susan Dooha, executive director of CIDNY, said that lack of subway accessibility is “one of the top two barriers to employment for people with disabilities.”Following the rally, activists moved upstairs to the packed courtroom, which was standing room only. Three wheelchair users had to be seated in the so-called well, a portioned-off section of the courtroom where lawyers sit.Activists held up copies of the New York Daily News so the judge could see the headline of the lead editorial, “Let Them Ride.” The paper, not generally regarded as disabled friendly, appealed to a basic notion of fairness: “All they want is the same lousy service we all enjoy.”The MTA legal team spoke first, trying with various legal maneuvers to get the lawsuit dismissed. Among their arguments, such as that the MTA is a state agency and the city does not have jurisdiction, they said the MTA was not opposed to putting in more elevators. It just had to prioritize where to spend its money: signal upgrades or elevators. The MTA lawyer’s actual words were: “Let’s say you decide to install 100 elevators. Then there won’t be resources for signal upgrades.”In a report following the hearing, the subway activist group the People’s MTA addressed this directly: “What a disgusting, transparent attempt to pit riders with disabilities against other riders. And the fact is, multiple exposes have shown that the MTA is already spending a paltry amount on signal upgrades.“A recent New York Times expose showed that the big emergency Subway Action Plan allocates only 9.5% of its operating budget to signals. This was supposed to be the plan that fixed the subway and stopped all those frustrating delays.“Another Times article, this one from December, noted that debt service to the banks amounted to $82 a second — which adds up to $7 million a day, $2.6 billion a year.”Two women lawyers for the disabled organizations, one in a wheelchair, countered the MTA’s jurisdiction argument, saying the NYC Human Rights Law of 1995 applies. They quoted a legal decision holding that the law should be interpreted broadly and a decision on a similar case in Boston. That case, settled by a conference between the two parties, specified a timeframe for all Boston subway stations to be accessible.Justice Shlomo Hagler interrupted frequently, asking the MTA lawyer to “speak from the heart” rather than read from a script. He also admonished the MTA for its failure to maintain an up-to-date transit system in New York City, which he called “the economic engine of the country.” He also decried the bad impression the unreliable system had on tourists.Hagler said it wasn’t fair that the subways were not 100 percent accessible and told the MTA to spend its money more wisely.The hearing concluded with the suit still in place. Judge Hagler ordered a settlement conference before making major decisions in the case. Monica Bartley, outreach organizer for CIDNY, said she was “cautiously optimistic.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Stonewall Uprising 1969, night 3: ‘The battle was on!’ from Lavender & Red, Part 70

first_imgOriginally published Aug. 14, 2006, this column was part of Leslie Feinberg’s series of articles on the connections between LGBTQ2S+ and socialist history. The 120-part series “Lavender & Red,” which appeared in Workers World from 2004 to 2008, is available for free download at workers.org/book/lavender-red/.Sunday, June 29, saw a lull between the battles [of the Stonewall Uprising], although many cops were patrolling the streets of the Village, hurling slurs at those milling on the corners and sidewalks, reportedly trying to egg on skirmishes.As thousands of gays and lesbians — drawing to their leadership and ranks people of color, trans people, street youths — had waged pitched battles with the cops on Friday and Saturday during the early nights of the Stonewall Uprising, a fault line of political difference opened visibly wide between those who had the least to lose and the most to gain from fighting back, and those who favored not rocking the boat.The tony crowd soaking up a little sun in the Hamptons and Fire Island Pines either ignored news of the rebellion or, as historian Martin Duberman noted, tended to condemn it as “regrettable.” The Mattachine Society had posted a sign on the Stonewall Inn reading, “We homosexuals plead with our people to please help maintain peaceful and quiet conduct on the streets of the Village.” Mattachine-New York, according to historian David Carter, “after talking to the mayor’s office and the police, joined police efforts to stop the protests. … Mattachine officials came to the Stonewall Inn and talked to people who showed up in an attempt to discourage them from protesting.”This was a far cry from the early days of the first Mattachine in California at the height of the Cold War 1950s, when communists and other revolutionaries led grassroots organizing to confront widespread police entrapment and brutality against gay men and the Chicanx/Mexicanx communities.‘No longer submissive’ to copsHowever, a bodacious group of gay youths descended on the Sixth Precinct and plastered the police cruisers, a police arrest van and the personal cars of police officers with luminescent fuchsia and blue bumper stickers demanding “Equality for Homosexuals.”Throughout the Village, teams made up of one male and one female passed out leaflets issued by the Homophile Youth Movement that demanded, “Get the Mafia and the Cops Out of Gay Bars.”Assessments of the changed mood of the LGBTQ population on Christopher Street were voiced from two antithetical directions.Deputy Inspector Pine, who led the initial raid on the Stonewall Inn, made a remark insulting those who showed individual courage, defiance and resistance in the face of police arrest and imprisonment, beatings and torture. Nevertheless, his words documented a dramatic overall shift in mass mood in the LGBTQ population: “For those of us in public morals [sic], things were completely changed … suddenly they were not submissive any more.”Gay male poet Allen Ginsberg visited the Stonewall Inn on Sunday night with Village Voice reporter Lucian Truscott. His later observation to Truscott contains a word that inflicts wounds when used by an anti-gay bigot. Yet speaking about his own community with tender pride, he wrote about the sea change he witnessed: “You know, the guys there were so beautiful — they’ve lost that wounded look that fags all had 10 years ago.”Rage still smolderingDavid Carter assembled the following firsthand accounts of incidents on Monday through Wednesday from participants. Monday and Tuesday nights were mostly quiet in the Village, as rain soaked the streets.Police who tried to pick fights, however, were met with bold responses.When one arrogant cop at Christopher Street and Waverly twirled his nightstick and hurled insults in the direction of passersby, an individual described as a “wildly ‘fem’ queen” lit the fuse of a firecracker and detonated it under his feet. The cop landed on his ass on the sidewalk.The cop shouted and flailed with his club. When the same militant individual tossed another firecracker at him, the crowd fought with the cop and was able to snatch his badge off his uniform.On Wednesday night, widespread street fighting resumed.That was the night the Village Voice coverage of the early events in the Stonewall rebellion hit newsstands. Some community members were so enraged by the anti-gay tone of the journalists that they debated torching the Voice’s offices that evening.Carter states, “The second reason that rioting resumed in full force on Wednesday is because various radical Left groups came to protest.”Participant Bob Kohler recalled: “There were more people rioting that could not be easily categorized, and a lot of that had to do with people that came over from other areas. The straight movement moved in heavily that night as a support.”The left wing of ‘gay liberation’Reports of those of all sexualities who came in support included members of the Black Panther Party, Workers World Party, the Yippies, a group that called itself the Crazies, and other self-identified leftists.In reality, these were parties and organizations [that already had] memberships of diverse sexualities. And many of the LGBTQ people who fought the cops at Stonewall also self-identified as leftists and revolutionaries.Struggle erupted around 10 p.m. A chanting crowd, estimated at 500 strong, met a motorcade of police with a shower of bottles.Police used their nightsticks to beat back the crowd. Eyewitness Ronnie De Brienza described seeing a friend pummeled by police and dragged off to a patrol car under arrest. “This was it,” he said. “From nowhere the crowd swelled to an estimated thousand, and the battle was on.”Those who were there that night describe the battle between police and protesters as ferocious. Once again, eyewitnesses explain, it was the most oppressed who led the struggle. Unarmed protesters fought hard and bravely against police — who were well-protected by equipment and armed to the teeth.Dick Leitsch, Mattachine-New York leader, observed that night that bodies of Stonewall combatants wounded in battle lay on the streets and sidewalks on Seventh Avenue South between Christopher and West 10th streets.He concluded: “Young people, many of them queens, were lying on the sidewalk, bleeding from the head, face, mouth, and even the eyes. Others were nursing bruised and often bleeding arms, legs, backs and necks.”         Within roughly an hour, the fighting ended. But the battles fought by the most oppressed and most militant layers of the LGBTQ population paved a new road toward revolutionary struggle, with the left wing of “gay liberation” at every barricade.
