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”.

About the Moria refugee camp in Lesbos: This is like living in Guantánamo

After the Pope's heartbreaking visit to Lesbos. The Moria refugee camp resumes its normal schedule

"Do you like living here?”
"No. We want to go to a good place. My father has Parkinson's.”

"Inside Moria camp is like Guantánamo, because it is very hard. The life is very hard here.”

Since the agreement between the European Union and Turkey took place, volunteers helping in the area indicate that fewer boats are arriving to the island. In the preceding months, there were days when around 100 would arrive.

The Greeks, whose country is entangled in a deep economic crisis, have become the only ones with open arms to welcome entire families arriving exhuasted from the Turkish coast.

"With my students, we collect some things like clothes or food for the refugees.”

"It's a very difficult situation, especially last summer. There were lot of people and there were not enough places to stay.”

For refugees, it is blood-curdling to think about the possibility, however slight, of returning to Turkey. Here they are secure, but live in poor conditions and are trapped, unable to advance or retreat. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Pope's visit meant a lot to them: Pope Francis has been the only world leader to come see them.
