Great quovadis 2018-07-02 20:23

Hi Paul.

The picture was taken just a few days before the civil unrest in the country took place. Today, two months after the "revolution" there are over 300 citizens of the country death, killed by the police or snipers on behave of the Ortega gang government. The country is heading towards a total chaos and despair situation, the world media does not put much attention to it, while innocent people suffer. Thanks for showing this peacefully looking scene from the capital city.

Default To quovadis: the unrest

Thank you Tomek,


In the notes of my previous two pictures I've written about the unrest.
It's indeed remarkably quiet in the media about Nicaragua.

Best regards,
Paul

Default The unrest in Nicaragua.

HI, Paul. Thanks for the reply, I am sure you are well informed and aware of the current economical and political situation in Central America. We just hold a vigil evening for the country of Nicaragua last Saturday. The repression must stop immediately and those responsible for the chaos and innocent death must be held accountable for it.

Kind regards.

Tomek

Hi Tomek,

There are some Nicaraguan students in Belgium who have brought the situation in their country to the media.
Furthermore there are also reports on traveler sites, such as Lonely Planet.
But all in all, Nicaragua gets very little attention here in the news ...
First it was always about North Korea and the refugee crisis. Now there is the World Cup football ...

Best wishes,
Paul
