Death threats for brave priest
Father Pepe has received death threats for bravely confronting drug barons. He was part of a team that produced a report called "The De Facto Decriminalization of Drugs in the Villas". Since then, the priest - whose real name is Father Jose Maria Di Paola - has been in danger in his home city of Beunos Aires.
Father Pepe has responded by stating that he will continue his fight because "we want all the youth to grow in the faith, go to school, have goals and objectives in life."
The priest has had good support beoth from Caritas and Christian Democratic Party in Beunos Aires.
