Nicaraguan Democracy Advocate

Felix Maradiaga is a Nicaraguan democracy advocate who was arrested in 2021 for leading a nonviolent movement against President Daniel Ortega. After being imprisoned for three years, he was forcibly exiled in February to the United States and had his citizenship revoked along with 222 other political prisoners. Now stateless, Maradiaga shares his reunion with his wife and daughter, his experience in prison, and his ideas on fighting against dictatorship at the 2023 Oslo Freedom Forum.
