World Youth Day celebration 2013 not threatened by protests in Brazil

As you heard on this programme, thousands of people across Brazil have been demonstrating against the rising cost of living and against corruption and poor service delivery in the country. Some of the demonstrations have been violent. The Brazilian Catholic archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro is scheduled to host the World Youth Day from July 23th to 28th. The English-language coordinator of World Youth Day activities is Fr. Michael Rogers. From Rio de Janeiro he told Chris Altieri that the protests would not affect the World Youth Day. RealAudioMP3
