Bagnasco indignant after Oxfam data (2)

CEI chief says widening poverty gap ‘unacceptable’

Bagnasco indignant after Oxfam data (2)

Genoa, January 19 - Genoa archbishop, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, on Tuesday expressed indignation after new data from Oxfam showed the world's 62 richest billionaires own as much wealth as the poorer half of the global population. "Poverty continues to rise in the world while wealth also grows," Bagnasco, who heads the Italian Bishops' Conference (CEI), said on the sidelines of a meeting with Mayor Andrea Doria. "This is unacceptable," he said. "Inequality is an issue that doesn't go out of fashion," Bagnasco continued. "Unfortunately if anything it is becoming more fashionable because the gap between those who have increasingly more and those who have increasingly less is getting bigger," he said. "What to do? People in positions of greatest responsibility and with the greatest skills must identify strategies to reverse the trend, but we must all do as much as possible to show solidarity and help one another. Not just assistance but also cooperation is needed to create more work and employment," Bagnasco concluded.
