Event

Groups have called for a nationwide anti-government protest on Saturday, September 21, with the aim of highlighting poor socio-economic conditions. President Daniel Ortega has prohibited anti-government protests for one year now, and therefore categorically ban this protest. The lead organization has insisted that the protest will go ahead.

In the capital Managua the protest will begin at 11:00 (local time) in various locations, including the Pellas and Movistar buildings.

Related protests are to be expected in urban centers across the country amid a heightened security presence. Transportation disruptions are also to be expected. Clashes cannot be ruled out.  

Advice

Individuals in Nicaragua are advised to monitor the situation for potential gatherings and protests, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruption and a heightened security presence in the event of any demonstrations, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
