The international community must stand together in the condemnation of the extrajudicial executions, persecution and violence perpetrated by the Nicaraguan government against hundreds of Nicaraguan students. Up to 280 Nicaraguans have been murdered.

The government has tried to silence the students’ demands for social justice, accountability and opening of democratic spaces with bullets. We demand the cessation of violence, express our solidarity with the students and call on the international community to condemn the actions of the Nicaraguan government.
