To live Laudato Si’ the Church must respond to the cries of the Amazon

Saturday, 04 May 2019 16:32

Two decades ago as a young university student, I had the opportunity to study in the Amazon region in and around Ecuador’s Yasuní National Park. The experience of seeing such incredible biodiversity juxtaposed with the environmental and social consequences of oil exploitation changed my life.
The Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns partners with the Pan-Amazon Ecclesial Network (REPAM) to protect this region. REPAM is a network and partnership between communities in the Amazon and the Catholic Church. Together, they strive to protect indigenous territories, cultures, and livelihoods from powerful forces such as large-scale development projects.

European networks and international human rights organizations express their deep concern over the disproportionate and sometimes fatal use of force employed by security forces of the state against protesters, as well as other attacks on human rights defenders in the context of the post-election crisis in Honduras. We call on the European Union to condemn these incidents, to publicly support the defenders, and to request the Honduran State ensure that international human rights obligations are fully respected.
