.- The organization Peaceful Civil Resistance, which was harassing the Catholic Church after the defeat of PRD presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, announced it would end the violent protests against Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera it has organized outside the Cathedral of Mexico City.

Gerardo Fernandez Noroña, a spokesman for the group that for weeks interfered in the celebration of the Mass at the Cathedral, announced the organization had made a “decision to suspend its protests” against the alleged “political activism” of the cardinal.

Standing in front of picketers Fernandez Noroña said the purpose of the “resistance” is not the Catholic Church, but rather to make a statement against President Felipe Calderon, who they call a “usurper” of the presidency.

Last week Cardinal Norberto Rivera denounced the sympathizers of Lopez Obrador for harassing him and he requested federal and city officials provide greater police protection.

Archdiocesan officials also revealed that the cardinal has received death threats, which they believe have come from PRD members.
