As violent strikes conclude, Bolivian prelates plead for peace
December 01, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: As violent strikes ended in Bolivia after 35 days, Bishop Aurelio Pesoa, the president of the bishops’ conference, said that “so many brothers have been hurt, a people has been been hurt, a wound that will take a long time to heal. For a predominantly Catholic people, this is not the way to wait for the Messiah.”
“The challenge is to walk together, towards a new world where there are no more strikes and blockades, where there is no tear gas, machine guns and missiles, not to mention weapons of mass destruction,” added Bishop Robert Flock of San Ignacio de Velasco. “In the light of the Lord, let us seek what the Lord offers, life in abundance for all.”
