Video: Bianca Jagger Decries Daniel Ortega's Assault on Human Rights in Nicaragua

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Five months after protests against the Ortega administration first broke out, the Nicaragua-born human rights defender Bianca Jagger presented at an AS/COA event on the transformation of the Sandinista revolution from what was once a source of hope to people like herself to what is today an authoritarian and brutal dictatorship, in her words. "One of the reasons why I feel so strongly and why I speak up is because, like many Nicaraguans, I feel betrayed by the murderous regime of Daniel Ortega." Jagger also called on the private sector to support the non-violent protests, and for the international community to implement sanctions against the Ortega administration.
