May 30, 2018
Nicaraguan pro-democracy advocate Edipcia Dubón describes the descent of her country into rampant poverty and political censorship under dictator Daniel Ortega. On April 18, a peaceful youth protest was brutally silenced, leaving hundreds dead, missing, or arrested. Dubón implores the international community to support the democratic cause in Nicaragua and help grant justice to those who have been targeted for speaking up.
