A cry for justice: 5 Years of Oppression and Resistance in Nicaragua

Apr 18, 2023
  • Description

Nicaragua has been in a social, political, and human rights crisis since at least April 2018, when the government responded with violence and unjust criminalization to mass protests against a proposal for social security reform. Since then, civic space has been systematically eroded by the government, which has persecuted those perceived as dissidents or opponents. This document presents an account of the main milestones and repressive processes witnessed in the country in the last five years which have culminated in a bleak scene of massive and systematic human rights violations that were continuing at the date that research for this report concluded, 13 April 2023.
