Making Amends

An international coalition of friends and relatives of victims of church residential schools is planning a summer tour in Europe, with major stops at the Vatican and UN. Comprised of survivors and families of children who disappeared while under church control in Australia, Ireland, Canada and the US, the coalition plans to form an international tribunal to hear the crimes of church and state in order to seek prosecution. The coalition is seeking full disclosure, repatriation of the bodies, preventive measures, as well as reparations for the deaths that number in the tens of thousands in Canada alone.
