Pope Francis calls on protestors to be peaceful, leaders to listen to them
September 14, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: “In these weeks we are witnessing numerous popular protests all over the world —in many parts —expressing the growing unease of civil society in the face of particularly critical political and social situations,” Pope Francis said on September 13 following his Angelus address. “While I urge the demonstrators to present their demands peacefully, without giving in to the temptation of aggression and violence, I appeal to all those with public and governmental responsibilities to listen to the voice of their fellow citizens and to meet their just aspirations, ensuring full respect for human rights and civil liberties.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
