Protesters Reject Pope Visit to Spain

Madrid, Aug 8 (Prensa Latina) Members of the 15-M protest movement this week will resume demonstrations in public places to oppose the visit of Pope Benedict XVI.

Members of what is also known the “Outraged” movement plans a program of protests to oppose the Popeâ�Ös arrival on Aug 18th.

A Via Crucis procession and a similar Opening Mass celebration will be held at the Plaza de Cibeles to officially begin the World Youth Day celebration, sponsored by Roman Catholic Church.

According to messages spread by the 15-M website, authorities are criticized due to the waste of resources, while welcoming the Pope and his 79-hour stay, instead of allocating them to public health care.

According to a survey, more than six million Spanish people have participated in the “Outraged” movement, the Ipsos Public Affairs pollster reported by the Spanish Radio and Television.
