Nicaraguan police use lethal force against the population
Dictator Daniel Ortega and several high-ranking police officers have been accused of crimes against humanity due to the systematic use of lethal force against unarmed civilians.
In addition to the brutal and repressive actions carried out by the Nicaraguan government that have resulted in more than 300 murders, hundreds of political prisoners and thousands of exiled citizens (Human Rights Watch report 2019), President Daniel Ortega now pursues a course of negligence and irresponsibility in the face of the global Coronavirus crisis.
“It is evident that there is no commitment towards, or concern for, the citizens, the value of human life, or the right to health,” said Carlos Fernando Chamorro, editor of the independent news outlet Confidencial in Managua (Univision).
In collaboration with different communication agencies and affiliated organizations of the Nicaraguan diaspora, our ‘Let’s talk about COVID-19’ campaign promotes information and precautionary measures through different media and activities.

We are a diverse team of people from Nicaragua who have all experienced the repression and lack of freedom in our country, many of us having taken refuge in The Netherlands to escape violence and retribution by the government.
We strive for democracy, peace, and human rights in Nicaragua. Our mission is to support local organisations and grassroot initiatives, and to create a union of international Nicaraguan exiles and migrants that will resonate in the international media and directly impact the political and social context in our country.
At the same time, we hope to create opportunities for Nicaraguan citizens and exiles whose human rights are being violated.
Mission Nicaragua is an initiative of The Hague Peace Projects.
We would like to express our gratitude to: The Hague Peace Projects, SOSNicaragua-Holanda, SOSNicaragua-Europa, and Nicas en el Mundo.
