Sign now to help us protect our lands!
Negativna dinamika situacije koju diktiramo osnovom krivih uvjerenja. To je vjerovanje da sam koncept vlasti nad drugima može na bilo koji način biti legitiman.
Vjerovanje u vlast je vjerovanje da neki ljudi imaju više prava od drugih. To je vjerovanje da pojedinci sa punim pravom mogu naređivati drugima. To je vjerovanje da su pojedinci punopravni gospodari, dok drugi imaju moralnu obvezu pokoravati se ovoj gospodarskoj klasi koja sebe naziva vlašću…
Prema bilo kojoj istinitoj definiciji, ono što TO zaista jest JE ROPSTVO
During the Second World War in Yugoslavia, Catholic priests and Muslim clerics were willing accomplices in the genocide of the nation’s Serbian, Jewish and Roma population. From 1941 until 1945, the Nazi-installed regime of Ante Pavelic in Croatia carried out some of the most horrific crimes of the Holocaust (known as the Porajmos by the Roma), killing over 800,000 Yugoslav citizens – 750,000 Serbs, 60,000 Jews and 26,000 Roma. In these crimes, the Croatian Ustasha and Muslim fundamentalists were openly supported by the Vatican, the Archbishop of Zagreb Cardinal Alojzije Stepinac (1898-1960), and the Palestinian Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini. Many of the victims of the Pavelic regime in Croatia were killed in the war’s third largest death camp – Jasenovac, where over 200,000 people – mainly Orthodox Serbs met their deaths. Some 240,000 were “rebaptized” into the Catholic faith by fundamentalist Clerics in “the Catholic Kingdom of Croatia” as part of the policy to “kill a third, deport a third, convert a third” of Yugoslavia’s Serbs, Jews and Roma in wartime Bosnia and Croatia (The Yugoslav Auschwitz and the Vatican, Vladimar Dedijer, Anriman-Verlag, Freiburg, Germany, 1988).
The ambivalent position of the Croatian Catholic Church towards the barbaric regime of murderers known as ‘The Independent Croatian State’ (1941–1945) determined that Church’s attitude to the murder of Croatia’s Jews.
Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission has helped all Canadians and First Nations communities grapple with the sorrowful realities of their nation’s colonial past, particularly the gruesome legacy of its residential schools for Indigenous children. Those schools, many administered by Catholic religious orders and intended to be engines of assimilation, became centers of despair and brutality.

In May of this year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Pope Francis at the Vatican. At the heart of his audience with the Pope was a request.
Trudeau asked Pope Francis to issue a public apology for the Catholic Church’s role in establishing and running Residential Schools in Canada. Such an apology is among the ‘calls to action’ from the Truth And Reconciliation Commission.
But the troubled history of the Catholic Church and indigenous people stretches back centuries.
After the remains of 215 Indigenous children were found at what used to be a Catholic residential school for Indigenous children, the Catholic Church needs to take responsibility.
The Catholic Church needs to not only acknowledge the role it played in the torture and genocide of Indigenous people in North America, it also needs to take action and pay reparations to not only the victims of residential schools but the governments themselves.
