“Speaking of a renewed America (the subject of the fifty-first session of the General Assembly), we believe it is important to renew the work of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and to make progress on its work reports, which in the case of my country are based on false news taken from press reports or tweets.”
Macfields urged that both sides of the same coin be heard, that there be more dialogue and that it be constructed in a harmonious way to capture all the nuances and colors of human rights.
He said that in Nicaragua, 1.5 million children receive free food in schools, and this is also a human right, such as the issue of access to solidarity housing, the repair and construction of more than a thousand health care centers and health units for the whole country. , pointed out.
He stressed that these are human rights, and in my country they are promoted and guaranteed.
