Noche Nica ! SOSNicaragua-Holanda Benefit Night
The day after the demonstration for Nicaragua (Plantón Nicaragua Libre) a peaceful demonstration for justice and freedom in Nicaragua on Dam Square and held simultaneously with other demonstrations by Nicaraguan communities in Europe, SOSNicaragua-Holanda invites you to enjoy an evening of culture full of Nicaraguan music, artwork, talks by different initiatives, and hopefully some live singing and dancing!
Also La Fritanguita de la Lleca will stir up plates from the pure Nicaraguan kitchen, imploring to sample the taste of Nicaragua with the best recipes they have in store!
SOSNicaragua-Holanda is an initiative that supports the popular movement for justice in Nicaragua, especially through demonstrations and information provision in NL
Since April 18th tens of thousands of Nicaraguans have joined student-led protests, which started as an outbreak of fury over social security reforms and morphed into a broader revolt against the authorities’ violent response – and President Ortega’s 11-year rule. At least three hundred people have died in the unrest, including a journalist shot dead while broadcasting on Facebook Live. The vast majority of the deaths have been caused by government security forces or their paramilitary allies.
