Buenos Aires (Agenzia Fides) – There are now sixty popular movements throughout the country that, together with the General Labor Confederation (CGT) and the Social Pastoral Ministry, next Saturday, September 24, will participate in a meeting to discuss the current social situation of the country. The goal is to propose the “3 T” project as State policy.
The meeting, the first of its kind for both the participants and the way it is presented, is sponsored by the Central Committee of the World Meeting of Popular Movements (EMMP) that has Juan Grabois as its first member, representative of the Confederation of Workers People’s Economy and consultant of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
According to the note sent to Fides by Telam agency, Grabois said: "We want to draw attention to the social entity that represents the excluded, who have little visibility in society, and continue in the proposal to adopt the integrated project that presents 3T as State policies".
The Bishops of the Commission for Social Pastoral of the Argentine Episcopal Conference, Mgr. Jorge Lozano, and Mgr. Fernando Maletti; the Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, His Exc. Mgr. Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo are among the many participants attending the meeting.
From the information gathered by Fides, there are great expectations for this particular day during which there will be the opportunity to hear and share the reflections of the Church. (CE) (Agenzia Fides, 21/09/2016)
