Occupy Protesters Disrupt Catholic Mass in Vancouver (Video)

A group of Occupy Vancouver protesters marched to the steps of Holy Rosary Cathedral to disrupt the Sunday mass service yesterday. The group had planned on disrupting the Sunday services but police officers prevented them from entering the cathedral during mass.

CTVBC reported:

A group calling themselves “Occupy the Vatican” disrupted service at a downtown Vancouver church Sunday, demanding justice for residential school survivors.

About a dozen protesters stood on the steps of the Holy Rosary Cathedral demanding to be let in, but were turned away by church volunteers.

“I’m not asking you to renounce your religion,” the crowd chanted in unison. “I’m asking you to stand with Jesus, and stand for what he stood for: justice, brotherhood, sisterhood and righting the wrongs of the past.”

Parishioners say people have the right to protest, but churchgoers also have the right to worship in peace.
