We must stop pillaging nature to find peace -Mattarella

Time to repair Creation is now president says in Assisi

(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 4 - President Sergio Mattarella said Tuesday that the world will not find true peace until humanity stops ransacking the natural world as he visited Assisi for the feast of Saint Francis, in an apparent call for leaders to tackle the climate crisis.
    "Peace is not just the lack of combat but, as Saint Francis reminds us, harmony with Creation is (also) intrinsic to it," the head of State said.
    "When resources are consumed to excess, when nature is pillaged, when inequalities between peoples are created, when the destiny of future generations becomes arid, peace moves further away.
    "We must repair, give back. This is the most pressing issue of our time.
    "And we don't have any more time that this.
    "It's a task that concerns us all, no one is irrelevant.
    "It's a task that should be done together". (ANSA).
