Cardinal Zen on hunger strike to defend Catholic schools in China

21 ottobre 2011

October 19, 2011. (Romereports.com) Cardinal Joseph Zen, the bishop emeritus of Hong Kong, has began a hunger strike to defend the right to freedom of education.

It comes as a response to the decision by the Supreme Court of Hong Kong to introduce a government committee in the management of a school. Now in addition to parents and students, government officials will have a say on the school governance.

With this hunger strike, the cardinal denounces what he calls “the danger of destroying Catholic education in the territory.”

The protest will last at least three days, during which the 79 year old cardinal will take only water and communion.
