A newspaper of the Catholic Worker Movement.
Abstract: This newsletter is a newspaper of the Catholic Worker Movement. It is produced by Ferme St. Joseph (St. Joseph's Farm), a small Christian commune in Quebec which devotes itself to farming the land. Two feature articles comment on the day-to-day struggles of the two farming families to maintain the farm at a time
when the government and large corporations (large dairies and the so-called milk co-ops) are driving the small farmer out of business. In another article entitled "This Land is Sacred To Us", the author, an Indian chief, challenges the white man to appreciate the land according to the tradition of the Native Peoples. In addition to poems and devotional material, the newsletter contains a listing of various newspapers and newsletters produced by Christian communes throughout Canada.
