"What the affected communities expect is a firm and prophetic stance from the churches. As Pope Francis said, this economy kills and we see this in communities every day. This is the moment in which the Prophetic Church, in favor of the poor and of the earth, becomes urgent and necessary, "affirms the Brazilian sociologist Moema Miranda, one of the coordinators of the" Meeting with Communities Affected by Mining in Latin America " which will take place in Brasilia from August 7 to 10.
Deepening the solidarity of the Church with the victims and communities impacted by mining is the objective of the next Meeting of Communities Impacted by Mining in Latin America, which will take place in Brasilia from August 7 to 10, 2018. During the event participants will listen directly to the impacted communities and peoples from different countries of the region.
