Brazil

Bishop Luíz Flávio Cappio ofm has been on hunger strike for 28 days now with the purpose of convincing the government of Brazil to give up a project to relocate a river with major consequences for the environment but few benefits for the people in the region. The Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Commission of the Union of Superiors General of men and women religious (USG/UISG), of which the Society of Jesus is a member, has sent a letter of support.
