Nicaragua: Mothers of Slain Protesters March for Justice

HeadlineJun 08, 2018

In Nicaragua, hundreds of mothers marched through the streets of Managua Thursday, calling for justice for the more than 100 sons and daughters killed by police and vigilantes in recent protests calling on President Daniel Ortega to resign. This is protester Ana María Pizarro.

Ana María Pizarro: “Children are showing up, having been tied up, tortured and beaten up. And many times, after many days of complaining, the authorities call on mothers to collect the bodies. Official organizations should be giving information on victims from day one.”
