They will celebrate Nicaragua's "resistance" anniversary in 40 cities of the world

The first anniversary of the "resistance" of Nicaragua before the Government of Daniel Ortega will be commemorated in 40 cities of the world, in a day that will run from April 15 to 21, informed the organizers on Sunday.

Nicaraguans and friends born in important cities of America and Europe, will join the celebration of the so-called "civic insurrection", which began on April 18, 2018, and which remains in effect 12 months later, as Ortega continues in the power and the opposition in "resistance".

The celebrations will take place in important cities of Germany, Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Costa Rica, Denmark, Spain, the United States, the Netherlands, Italy, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Sweden, reported the Blue and White National Unity, which organizes events together with the Nicas movement around the world.

The celebrations include marches, sit-ins, forums, congresses, artistic activities, caravans, masses, vigils, talks, exhibitions and talks, which will reflect the situation in Nicaragua.

The Unit scheduled a massive march for April 17, but there are doubts, as the National Police prohibits protests against President Ortega, despite criticism because that provision contradicts the Constitution of Nicaragua, which guarantees freedom of expression.

The protests against Ortega in Nicaragua are often attacked with violence by police and paramilitaries, according to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CIDH).

Nicaragua is experiencing a crisis that since April 2018 has left 325 dead, according to the IACHR, although some groups raise to 568 the fatalities, and the Executive recognizes 199.

Additionally, between 779 and 809 "political prisoners" are counted, almost twice as many as the government recognizes, which identifies them as "terrorists", "coup" or "common criminals".

The IACHR has held the Government of Nicaragua responsible for crimes against humanity.

The Organization of American States (OAS) is in the process of implementing the Inter-American Democratic Charter, by breaking the constitutional order, which if executed would suspend Nicaragua from the continental body.
