On January 18 will be fulfilled two years of the crime of Fernando Báez Sosa, the young man murdered at the exit of a bowling alley in Villa Gesell by a group of rugby players. To remember it, and under the motto “Love for all, hate for no one”, will make a interfaith prayer in the place where he was killed with the parents present.
“In tribute to the second anniversary of the assassination of our son, Fernando José Báez Sosa, on January 18, 2022 we make a call at Paseo 102 and Avenida 3, where an interreligious prayer for peace, for justice and against violence will be held. We hope to have the presence of all the people who want to accompany us on such a difficult day for us, thank you all very much for the support you always give us,” said Graciela Sosa, her mother, in a message broadcast by Telam.
The ceremony will take place at 7:00 p.m., in front of the Le Brique bowling alley.
In addition, it will bring together representatives of five religions: Apostolic Catholic, Anglican, Judaism, Muslim and Mormon. Each leader will speak and present a quote referring to “peace, justice and against violence”.
“We are going to pray for Fernando and for peace, to condemn violence and hatred,” Imam Marwan Gill, one of the organizers, told Télam.
The speakers will be: Monsignor Gabriel Mestre, Bishop of the Catholic Church of Mar del Plata; Eric Escala, Archbishop of the Anglican Church in Argentina; Miguel Steuermann, Director of Radio Jai in Latin America, representing Judaism; María Inés Deluchi, representative of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons); Monsignor Dante Luis Bergonzi, of the Argentine Apostolic Catholic Church and Imam Marwan Gill, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Argentina; and an evangelical pastor from the city of Villa Gesell.
Finally, Silvino and Graciela, Fernando’s parents, will say a few words, as reported to the news agency from the organization of the event.
