"Liberation Theology was born listening to the cries of the oppressed, those whose rights, autonomy, vital space to live was denied." 

"Today, for us, the oppressed who are in need of liberation are the Palestinians. And we, being coherent with Liberation Theology are on their side, listening to their cry." 

"We are against oppression, and in favor of their independence, freedom and the right to their land which belonged to their ancestors so that they accomplish their history as a people, with their language and culture." 

"Therefore, I join the cause of the Palestinians because they have rights and these rights cannot be denied. I support the World Social Forum for the Palestinian cause because this cause is of great dignity and for being fear and represent a duty." 

"It is our duty to be on the side of the Palestinians. Because they are victims and it is illegitimate, unworthy keeping them in their current situation."

"We want to be with them so that they are free, our brothers. And from that freedom with autonomy accomplish the process of peace and reconciliation with the State of Israel."

Political activist, liberation theologist, and Dominican friar Frei Betto also expressed solidarity with Palestinians, saying:

WSFFP "will gather representatives from the three religions of the book: Judaism, Christianity and Islam."
