Venezuelan bishops call for year of national reconciliation

Catholic World News - January 16, 2012

Exhorting Venezuelans not to look upon one another as enemies, the bishops of Venezuela are calling for a year of national reconciliation ahead of October elections.

The bishops also lamented the state of the nation’s prisons, called for respect for human life “from conception to natural death,” and urged all to respect human rights. “Such rights are violated by widespread violence, disrespect, impunity or manipulation of justice, the utilization of discriminatory lists, by the systematic use of lies and the attitude of indifference and passivity in the face common problems.”
