Pope Francis on the new Colonialism’

Pope Francis, in Nairobi Slum, Denounces ‘New Forms of Colonialism’ - The New York Times:
"When it came time to speak, Pope Francis delivered his sharpest remarks yet on his first trip to Africa. He lashed out against what he called “new forms of colonialism, which would make African countries parts of a machine, cogs on a gigantic wheel.” Francis said that “countries are frequently pressured to adopt policies typical of the culture of waste, like those aimed at lowering the birthrate.” He called the slums “wounds” inflicted by the elite. “How can I not denounce the injustices which you suffer?” he said."
