Large crowds of protesters, police barricades and masked men with guns roaming streets. A house burned down killing those inside including a five-month old baby, arrests and disappearances and police road checks examining phones for any evidence of anti-government postings. Over 500 dead and 350,000 people out of work.
Unfortunately, these kinds of reports are all too common; so common in fact, that horrific as it sounds, it just isn’t big enough to make it on our major news outlets. What I have just described above is the situation in Nicaragua as it has unfolded over the last six months.
