On April 18, 2018, after years of failed popular struggles and persistent government repression, fed up Nicaraguans reclaimed their streets in protest of the corrupt and authoritarian Ortega-Murillo regime. It all began when students, who were at the forefront of the protests, sparked a Civic non-violent Insurrection.



The very next day, on April 19th that the government opened fire on its own people and started the beginnings of a genocide that has now: killed 450+ people, injured 2,830 civilians, disappeared 718, and holds over 800 political prisoners.

Social Media

The revolution has been digital. We have been able to unite globally and live a revolution by means of social media. People were able to communicate these massacres and attacks as they were happening because of mass retweeting, hashtagging, and live streams. Social media has been a site of resistance where people can share their testimony, upload evidence of State violence, protect each other and engage in political debates about the democratic future we are all demanding. Social media made it feel like we’re there in real time and could witness the gradiosity of the people's resistance; marches that stretched for miles and miles, a whole nation demanding freedom.



 



This is our past, present, and future. Somos Nicaragua.
