April 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Canadian bishops’ foreign aid arm, the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (D&P), is funding two explicitly Marxist groups in Brazil that support and encourage the depenalization of abortion and the homosexual political agenda.
The groups are two of the seven pro-abortion organizations known to be receiving funds currently or to have received funds in recent years from D&P. D&P is funded in part by donations from the Catholic faithful in Canada, collected by Canadian bishops during Lent. The first two D&P partners exposed by LifeSiteNews are in Paraguay.
The two Brazilian organizations are the Movement of Landless Rural Workers (“Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra” or MST) and the “Movement of Dam Affected People” (“Movimento dos Atingidos por Barragens” or MAB). Development and Peace advertises both groups as aid recipients on its website (click on “Partners” tab), but continues to hide from the public the level of funding received by the two groups (as well as all of its partners).
