Buenos Aires, May 13 - A human rights group in
Argentina said on Monday that it recently received a telephone
call from Pope Francis expressing his support for the South
American ethnic indigenous group Qom, inhabitants of the
country's Gran Chaco region.
Gustavo Vera, head of the La Alameda foundation based in
Buenos Aires told local media that the pope said "I am praying
for the Qom and I hope their pleas are heard".
The chief of the indigenous community based primarily in
the provinces of Formosa and Chaco, Felix Diaz, has launched a
media campaign to ask for "respect and justice".
Diaz said that the Qom are "victims of violence by the
provincial authorities" and that they would continue to
"resist".
