A cornered regime is shooting at a mounting civic revolution
The exploding insurrection of consciousness in April has unexpectedly only grown despite the military response. Whether in street mobilizations, highway blockades or dialogue, everyone is demanding the same thing: justice and democracy. The Ortega-Murillo regime’s answer has been injustice and repression, only losing it more supporters and adding more calls for their departure. Internationally, above all in the Organization of American States, awareness is growing of what has been happening, what’s happening now, and what could happen if the crisis in Nicaragua drags out. ... continuar...
