Santo Domingo.- A group representing several social organizations on Wednesday picketed in front of the Nuncio’s residence demanding punishment for pedophile priests and the abolition of Dominican Republic’s decades-old pact with the Vatican, known as the Concordat.

Chanting slogans waving banners and wearing black armbands, the protesters also called for punishment of those who cover up those actions penalized by law.

"No more rapes! Amen. Repeal the Trujillo-concordat now,” read some of the protesters’ pickets.

“Pedophile priests to jail,” chanted one of the protesters who said both government and ecclesiastic authorities fail to proceed against those priests.

Me thinks the protests should be in front of the Cardinal's residence.
