Pope Francis made a prayer vigil for all those people who are victims of the Mafia in Rome. He appealed fot Italian gangsters to desist from their road to eternal damnation. The pope said "This life you have now, it will not give you pleasure, it will not give you joy, it will not give you happiness. The power, the money you have now from so many dirty deals, from so many Mafia crimes, blood-stained money, blood-stained power -- you will not be able to take that with you to the other life." Since 1996 the anti-mafia movement gathers with the Catholic Church to pray for the souls of the Mafia members and victims. The crimes of these gangsters range from human trafficking and slaughtering little children for drug debts. With faith, maybe these people will stop to think and change their ways.
Yesterday, May 1st, while some were resting for labor day's holiday, many syndicalist workers went to the streets in protest for better treatment and care of them. Besides the protest, many were remembering the 60 years anniversary of worker federations in Honduras. I respect and support any protest as long as it is pacific and for a good cause, such as claiming one's own rights. Now I do not support any protest if it involves rioting and damaging the streets as some members of FNRP were doing, and I believe that those men should be arrested.
