Rio de Janeiro, July 2 - Pope Francis has lent his
support to Brazil's most widespread demonstrations in more than
20 years, according to foreign media reports.
"They are just and coherent with the Gospel," the pope was
quoted as saying in Spanish daily El Pais.
The protests began mid-June to condemn a series of
transport-fare increases, though now are being directed towards
expensive events such as the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic
Games, both of which Rio de Janeiro is hosting.
The Argentine pope's alleged remarks have been widely
circulated in Brazilian media.
According to the same article, Francis plans to make
reference to the demonstrations in his sermons during World
Youth Day July 22-29 in Rio de Janeiro.
