The cruel and surplus slaughtering of dolphins must end. Even Japanese politicians claim that due to the high contamination of dolphin meat with toxins like mercury, the meat should be avoided. “Resistance For Peace” calls for the annulment of the IWC (International Whaling Comission). Instead the UNO should be concerned with the whole issue of whaling as well as small whales and dolphins.

Subttl.: Josef Ratzinger executed order to protect pedophiliacs
Today, Peter Rosenauer, Chairman of the NGO „Resistance for Peace“ filed charges against pope Benedikt at the prosecution authority Vienna. Josef Ratzinger was the responsible cardinal for enforcing the church order to all catholic bishops worldwide, to protect and hide pedophiliacs and sexual offenders. Those were detracted of legal prosecution by means of cover-up and similar practices. This order emanated from the Vatican´s document “Crimen Sollicitationis” which exists since 1962, when pope Johannes the 23rd approved it.
Over the last 20 years, until Ratzinger became pope himself, he was the responsible cardinal for executing it. In case of not obeying this church order, concerned clerics have been threatened with excommunication, the church´s most powerful punishment.
So reported aswell by the BBC in a broadcast on October the 1st with the Title „Sex Crimes and the Vatican“. The BBC as well names Ratzinger, for the time in which he was cardinal, as the finally responsible for the secret order „Crimen Sollicitationis”. The English translation of the (originally) latin decree, explicitly names “youths of all ages”: this means as well child abuse.
„Resistance for Peace“ brings forward the argument, that
catholic priests and other clerics also molested children in Austria and
Ratzinger´s activities averted adequate prosecution of such elements.
In the filed charges to the prosecution authority Vienna, „Resistance for Peace“ brings forward the following possible criminal acts of Ratzinger: Favoritism, obfuscation as well as assistance and incitement in/ to a crime.

- NGO "Resistance for Peace" seizes Canadian Embassy in Vienna
- Activists demand immediate Stop of Seal-Slaughter
Today, Tuesday 24th of April 2007, 10 activists of the NGO “Resistance
for Peace” seized the Canadian embassy in Vienna from about 10 am
on. (Laurenzberg No.2, 1010 Vienna, close to Schwedenplatz)
Canada want to kill about 270.000 seals this year, of which a large number
is baby-seals. Cimate-change, which at first hindered the scheduled hunt,
forced the hunters to increase the time-span of the killing.
“Resistance for Peace” asks Canada to take no chances and
stop the commercial seal-hunt once and for all.

- NGO: Resistance For Peace starts blockade of Japanese embassy in Berlin
- Activists protest against cruel dolphin-slaughtering in Japan
Today, Monday the 12th -03-07 around 9 p.m., ten activists of the human- earth- and animal-rights movement "Resistance For Peace" blocked the entrance of the Japanese embassy in Berlin.
Resistance For Peace was already active internationally a couple of times: Their spectacular actions aimed at Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger concerning the death-penalty and as well at George W. Bush on his last visit during the EU-USA-Meeting in Vienna in June 2006, where one of their activists managed to approach Bush more or less on shouting-distance.
Now Resistance For Peace calls chancellor Angela Merkel to use the German EU-presidency to put pressure on Japan concerning the unnecessary and cruel killing of whales and dolphins.
Every year Japan is killing about 20.000 dolphins and porpoises. For each dead animal, around 600US$ are paid on the market. The presence of international dolphin-trainers is an other appeal for the Japanese fishermen: A single unharmed dolphin, which will spend his life in the torment of a tourist-show or in one of the worldwide existing dolphinaria, is worth between 50.000-100.000 US$.
Peter Rosenauer, spokesman of Resistance For Peace claims: "Dolphins and porpoises are highly intelligent and sensitively feeling beings. The absolutely unnecessary slaughtering must be banned. The Japanese government and fishermen once and for all have to understand that those lovely mammals are not the reason for declining amounts of fish in the local fishing-grounds. This problem is home-made by means of pollution and over-fishing committed by their own (fishing)-industry. The whole whaling-issue is a big controversy within the Japanese society itself. Whale-eaters, who are constantly invoking traditions as an excuse for ongoing killings, usually are war-glamorizing right-wing conservatives."
Hint: Online-petition to the Japanese Prime-minister:

Human rights activists rename "Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium" "Arnold Killer Stadium".
Since the governor of California and political accomplice of George W. Bush has not spoken out against the death penalty despite much political provocation, activists from Resistance for Peace hang a banner from the roof of a stadium in Graz. Thus, an optical picture of the statement "Arnold Killer stadium" is created.
On Friday 29. 10. 04, at 9.00 am, activists from Resistance for Peace - an environmental, human and animal rights organisation founded in the summer of 2003 - hang a banner on display and thereby change the "Arnold Schwarzenegger stadium" to the name "Arnold Killer stadium".
In California, people are regularly condemned to death and are left to sit on "death row". The judicial verdict of death and the long wait for execution in the death cell are just as bad as the barbaric act of execution itself.
Excepting countries led by dictatorship and authoritarianism, the USA is the only western nation to implement the death penalty.
The fact that some states in the USA do not enforce the death penalty proves how controversial it is.
The death penalty is not a suitable method of preventing crime. Far more, it can be seen as a statement of ethical and moral bankruptcy on behalf of justice and society.
In the USA even juveniles are sometimes condemned to death ! Another scandalous fact is that, due to this law, many innocent people are also fated to lose their lives.
Resistance for Peace asks Arnold Schwarzenegger to condemn the death penalty and become politically active aginst it; not to merely pardon a handful of souls now and then for the sake of public relations.
