Statement from the CELAM-Misereor Symposium, Vatican City, 6 and 7 March 2009 (1)
Given the current situation of climate change, the international financial crisis and dwindling natural resources, as Church organisations we believe it is necessary to have a space for reflection in order to make a faith-based contribution to society. We are concerned about the speed of such changes compared with the slowness of social processes. Some people who fight for the dignity of the sons and daughters of God have become victims and received threats.
