Nicargua: Ortega Intensifies Persecution of Nicaraguan Farmers Movement

The regime of Daniel Ortega and his wife and Vice President Rosario Murillo has increased the political persecution against the peasant movement, which since four years before the social upheaval of last April 18th, had challenge it with at least a hundred demonstrations against the concession of the interoceanic channel.

At least six peasant leaders, among them the current coordinator of the National Council in Defense of Our Lake, Land and Sovereignty, Medardo Mairena, are imprisoned and are accused of alleged organized crime, terrorism, murder and other crimes, in processes that human rights organizations identify as full of vices and illegalities.
