Vandalized temples in Argentina

In several provinces of Argentina, theft, vandalism and desecration of churches were reported.

In the face of the economic crisis, that is exacerbated by the current pandemic, such incidents are more frequent and affect temples of Christian worship.

Alms, images– among other goods – become valuable for various criminal groups. Many times, in addition to desecrations, thefts include damage to infrastructure, forcing the temporary cancellation of Christian services.

These incidents have occurred in NeuquenCórdoba, Santa Fe, Entre Ríos, Buenos Aires  and  Misiones, among others.
