Nicaragua Left in Tense Calm as Dialogue Deadline Nears
Sunday was a day of counting the damage and treating the injured. Protesters also paid tribute to the victims, reinforced their security measures and made new manifestations

MANAGUA – Nicaragua experienced a day of tense calm on Sunday after the violent clashes that broke out in several cities on May 12, with only a few hours left before the end of the deadline given by the Church for the government to show “credible signs” to accept a dialogue proposal.

Sunday was a day of counting the damage and treating the injured. Protesters also paid tribute to the victims, reinforced their security measures and made new manifestations.

Various areas in several cities were cordoned off to prevent looting and prevent the entry of government forces.

Masaya, known as the City of Flowers, was caught up in chaos on May 12 with constant clashes between protesters, riot police and Sandinista mobs.

The opposition Broad Front for Democracy criticized the government’s “intention of exterminating” the riots, and called the regime’s hatred of a it’s protesting people “excessive.”

The devastating effects of the clashes on May 12 created an apocalyptic scenario with multiple obstacles to access to the city, cobblestone barricades, the smoking foundations of buildings devoured by the flames and looted commercial premises clearly showing the hell lived by its inhabitants just a few hours before.

In support of the cause of the demonstrators, hundreds of vehicles and motorcycles were driven from Managua to the department of Masaya to show solidarity with all the citizens who suffered repression there.

This caravan took place just a few hours before the Episcopal Conference had to assess whether the government had fulfilled the necessary conditions to be able to begin a dialogue.
