Ever since April 23rd, legitimate peaceful demonstrations both for and against Nicaragua’s Sandinista government have taken place in the shadow of murderous violence and extortion by opposition paramilitaries allied with organized crime. To date over 110 people have been killed and over eleven hundred injured, the great majority government supporters, police officers or bystanders. But opposition media and human rights NGOs systematically misrepresent their paramilitaries’ murderous anti-democratic violence and falsely accuse the Sandinista government of unprovoked attacks and repression.
Even Luis Almagro, Secretary General of the Organization of American States has denounced the lies of Nicaragua’s political opposition. The OAS has declared support for Nicaragua recognizing the contribution of the government to a peaceful resolution of the current crisis. . .
