Campaign against Sunday shopping in Italy
Catholic World News - December 28, 2012
“The powerful Catholic Church”--and more specifically, “the powerful Italian Bishops Conference”--is supporting a signature-gathering campaign in support of reimposing limits Sunday shopping, The Christian Science Monitor reports.
In January 2012, the Italian government removed restrictions on shopping on Sundays and holidays.
“People have the right to rest one day per week,” said Aldina Orlandini, the owner of a clothing store. “Am I not a human being? Don’t I have a family?”
