Praia, 11 Dec (Inforpress) – CNDHC’s president pointed out this Friday, social inequality as one of the biggest pandemic challenges, defending the need to work “incessantly” in the search for human solidarity and creation of a more “fair” and “equal” world.
The president of the National Commission on Human Rights and Citizenship (CNDHC), Zaida Freitas, made this statement in Praia, during her intervention in the open conversation with civil society, promoted in partnership with the Citizenship Observatory and the UN System in Cabo Verde, through the zoom platform, on the theme “Human Rights in times of a pandemic”, to celebrate the International Human Rights Day, which is observed in December 10.
“COVID-19 knows no borders, does not distinguish race, ethnicity, religion, social status, sex, age or nationality. The virus does not discriminate against us, but the way it affects us has been discriminatory”, stated the president.
Zaida Freitas said that the vulnerabilities of the Cabo Verdean system “increased” in the context of the pandemic, stressing that the effects of this crisis are a “real test” of measures, public policies and institutions.
