Ending Clergy Abuse (ECA) è un’organizzazione internazionale di attivisti dei diritti umani e
sopravvissuti vittime degli abusi sessuali da parte del clero al fine di proteggere bambini e
promuovere forme di giustizia per le vittime. Il progetto #SURVIVORS ha come obiettivo principale quello di capire quali siano le
conseguenze psicologiche, fisiche e relazionali, a breve e lungo termine, nelle vittime di abusi
da parte del clero. Inoltre, si vogliono rendere più consapevoli le comunità di cosa ambia
implicato per le vittime essere abusati. Infine, documentare le attività e azioni che ECA sta
portando avanti. Da questi presupposti nasce la volontà di sviluppare questo progetto mondiale di ricerca
fotografica e reportage che coinvolgerà vittime e attivisti, creando un quadro visivo di quale
sia la situazione attuale. #SURVIVORS è un progetto che […]

Argentine deaf survivors and global leaders from the Mendoza-based human rights organization, Xumek, Ending Clergy Abuse: Global Justice Project (ECA), BishopAccountability.org, Pathways Foundation, ACTS and SNAP, gathered in Rome to mark the first anniversary of the Pope’s global abuse summit. They requested a public meeting with Pope Francis but he ignored their request.
Global leaders from ECA GLOBAL, deaf clergy abuse survivors from Argentina and their attorneys from the Human Rights organization Xumek traveled to Geneva in February 2020 to present a report that questions ecclesiastical action in the case of the Antonio Próvolo Institute in Mendoza. The report was delivered to the United Nations Committee against Torture and the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, which in 2014 issued a series of recommendations for the Church to collaborate in the Ordinary Justice investigations into cases of sexual abuse.
APRIL 7, 2020. Survivors around the world today are reacting with dismay and confusion over the Australian High Court’s reversal of the conviction of Cardinal George Pell for child sexual assault. Although the court said it was not ruling on the guilt or innocence of Pell it effectively did just that, annulling a guilty verdict by a jury, which was upheld by a majority appeals court decision. It seems as if the high court made the extraordinary decision to re-try the case on their own, although Pell was given the absolute fullest latitude of the law and was represented by a competent and very expensive […]

As we take the time to remain safer at home in order that the global community may heal from this Covid-19 virus, let us be mindful that April is designated as Child Abuse Prevention Month and there are others who still need our care […]
Su Santidad, el Papa Francisco
00120 Ciudad del Vaticano.
Querido Papa Francis,
Nuestra organización dirigió la mayor reunión internacional de clérigos víctimas de abusos sexuales y activistas en Roma en febrero de 2019 y 2020. Nuestra conducta fue pacífica y nuestro mensaje claro: Tolerancia Cero.
El mes pasado, durante el primer aniversario de su cumbre mundial sobre el abuso, volvimos a Roma para entregar un informe sobre los acontecimientos del año pasado en todo el mundo. Nuestra presencia no fue reconocida y nadie del Vaticano o de los líderes de la Iglesia se acercó a nosotros. Esto contrastaba con el año pasado cuando fuimos invitados a reunirnos con su grupo de planificación antes de la Cumbre y los Cardenales vinieron a visitarnos […]
