On the Third Sunday of Advent, Bolivian bishops reflected on the need to end conflicts over land seizures in order to have a peaceful Christmas, given the climate of tension that continues in the region.
The archbishop of Santa Cruz, René Leigue Cesarí, addressed the authorities in his Dec. 11 homily, asking them to find a solution to achieve peace and true unity.
The prelate referred to the conflict over the seizure of land in the Santa Cruz area, where authorities were present and promised to seek police support and protect the Kim family, owners of the land taken.
Last Thursday, a group of citizens went to the place to remove the illegal occupants and a confrontation ensued, leaving at least two injured.
