Hus inspires fresh protest against church restitutions

06-07-2013

Some 100 people gathered on Prague’s Old Town Square on Saturday to highlight Jan Hus’ legacy and protest against the law on church restitutions. In a letter to Pope Francis they ask the head of the Catholic Church, which is to receive 134 billion crowns worth of land and property, to refuse to accept it. The petition has been signed by several hundred people who hope that Pope Francis, as a modest man and a staunch defender of the poor, will hear their plea.
