Nicaraguans in Costa Rica demonstrate against what they call “Ortega-Murillo dictatorship”

Dressed in blue and white, many Nicaraguans who live in Costa Rica or are in exile, took to the streets of San Jose on Sunday to claim Nicaragua’s freedom and protest against what they call a dictatorship of current President Daniel Ortega and his wife and Vice President, Rosario Murillo.

The demonstration moved from the Parque La Merced, known as the “Nica” park, on the west side of Avenida 2 to the Plaza de la Democracia on the other side of downtown of San Jose.

“We are here to show that the different blue and white people are united against the Ortega-Murillo dictatorship,” said Ireland Jeréz, recognized opposition leader within the Nicaraguan community in Costa Rica.

“We have fought for years against this dictator who has held our people captive,” added Jeréz.

The protests began early Sunday morning and a large number of people with flags and drums joined in as the morning continued.
