Nicaragua’s Speech to the UN Human Rights Council – Jun 22, 2021

The Government of Reconciliation and National Unity represents within this Council, the Noble, Brave and Hardworking People of Nicaragua, with their heads held high and the Pride of being Protagonists of a History of Struggle for our National Sovereignty, our Independence, and even more so, in the Year of the Bicentennial.

We have the right to live in peace. We have the right to respect. We have the right to Peace, which we have been building so hard after centuries of aggression, meddling and intervention by the United States of America and the complicit European Powers, which have sought to maintain imperialist and colonial domination over our Free, Sovereign and Blessed Nicaragua.

We stand before this Council to ratify the Vigor, Glory and Historical Truths of the Nicaraguan People, who are emancipated and have risen with a Soul of Victories, in the face of the same aggressors. We have the Honor of defending our Motherland, defending the Interests and the Rights of a People that advance, in its own Values and Cultures, a People that have been recognized throughout the years, as an inspiration and an example of Peoples in Struggle.
