Korean priests protest 'greed' in national policies

Catholic World News - November 09, 2011

A group of Korean Catholic priests has announced a hunger strike to protest what they see as greed in national policies.

The Catholic Priests’ Association for Justice began a week-long hunger strike on November 8 with a Mass celebrated outside the Korean parliament building. The priests are calling for the cancellation of a major construction project, a new naval base, and a trade agreement with the US.
