The Commissioner of the INAI, Blanca Lilia Ibarra Cadena, stated that there must be no first and second-class citizen. Therefore, information must be provided immediately without distinctions, especially in the case of a health crisis such as the one the country is currently going through.
She stated that community radio stations play a very important role and that this health crisis has revealed the vulnerability that prevails within indigenous communities and peoples. Besides, she pointed out that INAI is in debt with the indigenous communities since priority has been given to the large state capitals of the Contry and the states with new technologies.
In addition, she pointed out that INAI, together with IFT and civil society organizations, by working in coordination, will be able to immediately reactivate a program that will strengthen access to public information for these groups, providing equal conditions and social justice.
