The Nicaraguan government said today that Nicaraguans are protesting against President Daniel Ortega to be blind in the face of the sociopolitical crisis in the country that has left hundreds dead since April.
"There are still groups where the heart is blind," vice president Rosario Murillo said in a message through official media.
"Let's open our eyes and think about our children, our young people, our old people, our families, because we all deserve a country in peace, working and prospering," added the first lady.
Murillo said that Nicaraguans deserve to "live beyond selfishness", and also meet and meet each other with their differences in terms of culture and civilization, and not of obfuscation and destruction.
"Obfuscation that unfortunately still some suffer and destruction that still some seek," he continued.
He recalled that last Saturday President Ortega warned about "those who (few) want blood still in Nicaragua."
"What a horror, how can someone have a vampire lens and a heart that still wants blood? In our streets, in our communities, hate, blood, that can not exist," he continued.
He argued that this is not from Christians, nor from people of faith or pastoral.
Nicaragua is going through a sociopolitical crisis that has left, according to local and international humanitarian organizations, between 322 and 512 deaths, while the Executive establishes the deaths in 199 and denounces an attempted coup d'état.
In the framework of the crisis, the Nicaraguan Police detained 38 members of a group of opponents on Sunday when they tried to protest in the streets of Managua against President Ortega.
On April 18, protests against President Ortega began for social security reforms, which became the demand for his resignation and that of his wife, Vice President Murillo.
Nicaraguan humanitarian organizations denounce the existence of some 459 "political prisoners", while the Nicaraguan government speaks of more than 200 detainees, whom it refers to as "terrorists" and "coup leaders".
