Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

The ethnic tribe leader, Felix Diaz, attended the meeting with his wife.  The main purpose was to talk about human right violations faced by indigenous communities in Argentina and other Latin American countries. 

As a pacifist and human rights activist, Esquivel won a Noble Peace Prize back in 1980. During the meeting, he said he was concerned about the rights of indigenous communities, specifically in regards to their land and cultural identity.

"We will continue. From now on, we will work and collaborate in whatever is possible.”

After the Pope blessed Amanda Asijak, she invited him to an event the tribe will take part it. 

"We will hold a march in September.” 

The group is no stranger to the Pope. As the archbishop of Buenos Aires, then Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio had already met these representatives. In fact, like a long time friend, he gave Fr. Francisco Nazar a hug before leaving. Nazar, serves as the vicar of  indigenous populations in the Argentinian Diocese of Formosa.
