>>Citizens perform a velatón outside Santiago Cathedral demanding the departure of Bishop Barros

January 14, 2018

La manifestación se produjo a menos de 48 horas de la llegada del Papa Francisco a nuestro país.

Un grupo de ciudadanos realizó una velatón en las afueras de la Catedral de Santiago la tarde y noche de este sábado, exigiendo la salida del obispo Juan Barros de su cargo.

Los manifestantes -entre los que se incluían Juan Carlos Cruz y José Andrés Murillo- argumentan que el sacerdote habría encubierto al ex párroco de El Bosque, Fernando Karadima, y a los abusos sexuales que cometía.

[Google Translation: The demonstration took place less than 48 hours before Pope Francis arrived in our country.

A group of citizens held a vigil outside the Cathedral of Santiago on Saturday afternoon and evening, demanding the departure of Bishop Juan Barros from his post.

The protesters – among which included Juan Carlos Cruz and José Andrés Murillo – argue that the priest had covered up the former pastor of El Bosque, Fernando Karadima, and the sexual abuse he committed.

This velatón is not the only activity of citizens questioning the role of Juan Barros. The Lay and Lay Organization of Osorno announced that it will be in the activities of Pope Francis in Santiago and that it will be manifested so that the Supreme Pontiff can make a determination about the problem.

Other citizens who circulated in the sector spontaneously joined the initial group of about twenty people, reports Radio ADN. This Sunday there was a new meeting in the vicinity of the cathedral.]
