"WAR IS OVER... if you want it!" - Merry Christmas from the London Catholic Worker



30 years ago Dorothy Day died peacefully in New York City leaving a legacy of 180 radical Catholic Worker communities practising the acts of mercy to the poor and nonviolent resistance to the war making state.

10 days later in New York City John Lennon, a voice of a generation was slain and silenced.

20 years ago, the US launched its long war on the people of Iraq. Intense US bombardment, genocidal sanctions and outright invasion have slain millions of Iraqi people, driven 2 million into exile and displaced another 2 million internally.

10 years ago the US launched its ongoing invasion of Afghanistan. An endless war with little public support but little visible opposition.

On the cusp of Christmas 2010, Catholic Workers in London inspired by the words of John Lennon and the praxis of Dorothy Day got out of bed and headed to their local shopping mall to shutdown the army recruitment centre...

The Watfford Army Recruitment Centre continues recruiting for a war on Afghanistan that has now gone longer than WW1 and WW2 combined. With, at last count ,404 British military fatalities and uncounted Afghan dead part of the consequence of the invasion of Afghanistan. This U.S. directed war has no popular support in Britain but alas little visual opposition.

Today's vigilers included a U.S. Air Force veteran and 2 Catholic Workers who had been previously imprisoned for plowshares disarmament actions on a B-52 Bomber, nuclear convoy vehicle, uranium mining equipment and a U.S. war plane en rote to Iraq. Animated debates on the street about the ongoing war, inteaction with military staff, support and insults from passersby were responses to the vigil. To "vigil" is to remain awake. The warmaking state prefers we slumber as the war escalates and expands
