WHERE
Sala Stampa della Santa, Via della Conciliazione, 54, 00120 Città del Vaticano RM

WHO
Prominent survivors of clergy abuse and activists, Ending Clergy Abuse (ECAglobal.org), who have gathered from around the world for the papal summit.

WHY
On Sunday morning, Pope Francis will conclude the papal summit with remarks from St. Peter’s square.  The theme of the papal summit was “responsibility, accountability and transparency” concerning child sexual abuse by clergy and the cover up of those crimes by bishops and cardinals.  Several cases, however, in which Francis was involved with while archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, have raised serious concerns about his leadership on this issue.  Survivors will be calling upon Pope Francis to release to criminal and civil justice authorities on Monday all documents related to sexual abuse cases from that archdiocese.  Survivors will also be calling upon Pope Francis to explain his behavior in respect to Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta.  Zanchetta was recently removed from his post in Argentina for alleged sexual abuse and financial misconduct and promoted by Francis to an important position in the Vatican.
