In mid-88 I boarded the U.S.S.docked in with Jim Dowling (arrested in this action) and four others to carry out an exorcism of this death ship that had killed so many children in and . We passed through the military bag check, carrying blood we had donated to the action in blackcurrent juice bottles, and made our way to the foredeck overshadowed by its enormous guns. On another part of the ship parents and children were taking tours on what had been promoted by all levels of local state and Federal government as a tourist attraction. We poured the blood in a cross, named the ship for what it was and knelt in prayer. We were the arrested.
In late 1994 I accompanied Jim (again) and a heavilly pregnant Lisa (arrested in this recent action at, ) into the offices of Petroz mining company in our hometown of . We poured blood from bottles on the boardroom table, pasted photos of East Timorese around the boardroom and prayed. We were arrested. We had named Petroz as coluding with the genocidal Suharto governments crimes in to exploit the reserves in the Timor Sea.
We had been intoroduced to the political relevance and the radical praxis of exorcism in scripture by the theologian Ched Myers in his work of Mark’s Gospel “Binding the Strongman” (Orbis Press).
, and its works of war, stretches from to Derry to to . Our humble resistance community streches over 30 years of sustained nonviolent resistance. I first met Jim in police custody in 1978. Lisa in the mid-80’s. My brother Sean (who I have known the longest!) accompanied Lisa & Jim into the offices. While companies like keep profiting from the killing of children, we’ll keep on keeping on.
