The meetings with Cardinals Parolin and Turkson discussed debt burdens and cancellation, tax avoidance by corporations and the need for financial reform.

Eric LeCompte from Jubilee USA said:

“Pope Francis is challenging the policies that keep people poor. He is an important ally in efforts to stop austerity policies and to encourage corporations to pay their taxes.”
