Berlin - On April 15, a group of students and former students organized a protest in Berlin against the educational system in the Catholic schools.
In front of the Brandenburg Tor, an historic place in the heart of Berlin, just a few meters from the German Parliament, many demonstrators met in order to protest against the sexual abuse by the priests in the Catholic scholastic institutes.
For the event, Jacques Tilly, the famous illustrator and builder of giant puppets, created an enormous Sister with crucifix and baton.
"The "Freie Initiative ehemaliger Heimkinder" (Free Initiative of Children under Treatment) has the goal of pointing out the attention of the public institution on the problem of sexual abuse in the Catholic institutes," said one of the organizers, "but also we want justice and compensation for the treatments that we had to suffer."
The protest has grown up with the participation of many tourists who felt emotionally involved with the demonstrators.
The event occurs just one day before the birthday of Pope Benedictus XVI.
