In Nicaragua, police arrested over 100 people over the weekend, after protesters took to the streets demanding the government of President Daniel Ortega release all political prisoners and following Friday’s release of 50 prisoners amid an ongoing crackdown on journalists and government critics. Last month, Ortega vowed to reopen talks with political opponents. This is a protester speaking in Managua Saturday.
Protester: “We are calling for freedom for all our political prisoners. The government has accepted that there are political prisoners. The only crime that they committed was to raise their flag and their voices for Nicaragua.”
