printable version

Hundreds of Romans gathered this afternoon at the invitation of the Community of Sant'Egidio, in the courtyard of the parish of St. Barnabas, in Torpignattara, a few meters from the place where a few nights ago, Zhou Zeng and his little girl were killed while, after closing the bar where the family worked, returning home.

An act of violence unacceptable, to which many have decided to respond with a gesture of peace, prayer and then a short procession to the place of the killing , where flowers and candles have been placed.

Among the crowd men and women of every age and ethnicity, many children, the pastors of the area, some relatives of the victims. Together to say no to violence.
