Official Title

Condemning the violence, persecution, intimidation, and murders committed by the Government of Nicaragua against its citizens.

Summary

Condemns the violence, persecution, and murders of peaceful protesters by the government of Nicaragua. Calls on the United States to continue to condemn the atrocities in Nicaragua, demand the release of individuals wrongfully detained, and identify individuals whose involvement in the violence qualifies for the imposition of sanctions.
    We need to do whatever we can to stop the human rights abuses here in our hemisphere and punish the Ortega Regime before Nicaragua turns into Venezuela 2.0. We cannot afford more suffering in neighboring nations and increased illegal immigration which would surely be a result of a full blow crisis.

    I am writing about your upcoming meeting: Nicaraguan Crisis: Next Steps to Advancing Democracy and H.Res. 981: Condemning the violence, persecution, intimidation, and murders committed by the Government of Nicaragua against its citizens. I am a US citizen of Nicaraguan descent and I fully support stronger actions against the government of Nicaragua who are killing unarmed citizens on a daily basis since April, peaceful marchers, bystander and even families with babies inside their houses. Please the entire community of citizens of Nicaraguan descent and their friends ask for your help.

    SOS NICARAGUA!!! It’s urgent that we do something to stop the massacre of civilians. Turning our head to the other side of this crisis is inmoral and inhuman.
