CWN Editor's Note: The Italian edition of L’Osservatore Romano reported on a May 1 encounter between Pope Francis and Aboubakar Soumahoro, a West African immigrant who is now an Italian citizen and trade union activist. “Go forward for social justice; do not stop,” the Pope told Soumahoro, the author of a new book, Umanità in rivolta La nostra lotta per il lavoro e il diritto alla felicità [Humanity in Revolt: Our Struggle for Work and the Right to Happiness].
