Former Presidents of Costa Rica Make A Call Against Xenophobia

Former presidents #CostaRica call for Peace and warn against perverse interests that may be trying to destroy “our harmony and fuelling hatred and xenophobia”.

“Let us not succumb to temptation,” says the Tweet, that includes a copy of the letter signed by all the former presidents: Rafael Angel Calderon (1990-1994), Jose Maria Figueres Olsen (1994-1998), Miguel Angel Rodriguez (1998-2002), Abel Pacheco de la Espriella (2002-2006), Oscar Arias (2006-2010), Laura Chinchilla (2010-2014), and Guillermo Solis (2014-2018).

“Hate and xenophobia degrade people and it has taken them to war in many nations, causing death and destruction… To resolve our problems we need to live in peace. Let us not allow our fraternal life to be put at risk”, says part of the message.
