Managua, Nicaragua, Jul 9, 2019 / 13:19 pm
The Archbishop of Managua asked Sunday that the Organization of American States dialogue with the victims of Nicaragua's sociopolitical crisis.
The continental organization adopted a resolution last month that it will make diplomatic efforts to resolve the Nicaraguan crisis. It also emphasized the importance of resuming dialogue between the government and opposition, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and called for human rights inspectors to be admitted.
Cardinal Leopoldo José Brenes Solorzano said that "I hope that the people who are going to be sent, can speak not only with the great leaders, but that they come down to the grassroots," following a July 7 Mass at Managua's Immaculate Conception Cathedral.
He urged in particular that OAS officials speak to the poor.
