La Paz, Bolivia, Nov 22, 2019 / 18:05 pm
The Bolivian bishops' conference called for an end to violence, as protests continue in the wake of former president Evo Morales' resignation.
"We raise our voices to call on everyone: Enough death! Enough violence! Enough suffering and pain!" the bishops said in a statement entitled "Spiral of Violence and Death."
"We condemn the violence wherever it comes from. We once again remind that it is irrational and irresponsible, and it is not a solution for conflicts between human beings."
The bishops warned that the "growing spiral of irrationality and violence" will continue bringing injury, death, and mourning to the country unless demonstrators can express their demands peacefully and law enforcement can refrain from the use of excessive force.
