"Burkina Faso needs justice, reconciliation and peace", say the country's Bishops

"Burkina Faso needs justice, reconciliation and peace. The protagonists of the current social tensions (majority and opposition political parties, movements and associations, civil society) must avoid any violence and any action that would worsen tensions, of undermining the dignity of the human person and the common good, and to lead our country into chaos". This is what the Bishops of Burkina Faso wrote in the document drawn up after the Ordinary Plenary Assembly of the Bishops' Conference, held in Ouagadougou from 11 to 14 June, which dealt with the difficult situation that the country is experiencing, marked by social unrest and unrest also fueled by the project to establish the Senate as part of the institutional and political reforms.
The document points out that the government is increasingly detached from reality and the social gap deepens: mass poverty grows, one Group only splits the political and financial powers, corruption is rampant, young people are hopeless, violence increases .
