At #EasterVigil in #Nicaragua, @silviojbaez tells people: "The historical moment that our country is living, tinged with tears and blood and with such an uncertain horizon, seems more full of sadness, pessimism and death than life and hope" (CNS photo/Reuters) 1/5
This is last Easter in Nicaragua for awhile for @silviojbaez. He has faced increasing death threats and #PopeFrancis asked him to come to the Vatican. At vigil: "As believers enlightened by the Risen One, we cannot fall into fatalism or let fatigue or despair overpower us." 2/5
"Let us not settle for living in a social sepulcher. Let us dream of a new country & commit ourselves to building it, enlightened by the paschal faith, supported by the power of the Lord who lives in our history." @silviojbaez #EasterVigil. Thx to @carmelitequotes translation 3/5

It’s a HUGE chess game. Each piece has it’s part. For example, it LOOKS as if Trump is suddenly interested in slamming #Mexico with tariffs instead of building a wall. Think what these tariff will do to Mexico. $25.00 per car. Cars sold around the world. And one cannot exactly
2/ hide the cars one ships. If #Mexico doesn’t fall in line in the next week or so (yes, Trump said YEAR, but look at #NorthKorea ) he effectively watches Mexico go up in smoke. He already froze payments to #ElSalvador #Nicaragua & #Guatemala
3/ This is the same guy who finished off the guys OBAMA was supporting: #ISIS I don’t doubt he will get it all done. But keep in mind there is a lot of distraction going on. Just know the main guy never loses sight of the ball.

El operativo policial realizado en #Nicaragua, que en #Managua impidió el desarrollo de la movilización opositora para exigir la liberación de los presos políticos, dejó al menos 165 detenidos y 6 heridos. Abrimos hilo para denunciar represión de ayer del Estado nicaragüense.👇🏾
Desde temprano, la Policía Nacional se ubicó con actitud intimidatoria en las calles de #Managua. Cerca del horario de la marcha, un gran operativo policial destinado a detener y reprimir persiguió a manifestantes incluso en centros comerciales. #Nicaragua #ProtestarEsUnDerecho
El despliegue policial incluyó detenciones practicadas por agentes que iban vestidos de civil, sin identificación apropiada que indicara a qué fuerza de seguridad pertenecían. #ProtestarEsUnDerecho #Nicaragua

Hilo: voy a contar x aquí algunos puntos q iba a tratar en @OEA_oficial mañana. Iba a arrancar con este gráfico, q ilustra ingreso de @PDVSA x venta de petróleo, entre 2001-16 (fuente balances auditados @PDVSA)
Como podrán observar, ingreso de @PDVSA representa unos 13 Plan Marshall, y casi tres veces lo destinado por el gobierno americano al TARP (busquenlo en Google). Es decir, con 13 veces más de lo q costó la reconstrucción de 18 países europeos, el chavismo nos dejo 👇👇
Con casi tres veces más de lo costó reflotar la mayor economía del mundo, el chavismo logró depauperar a #Venezuela, al punto que 3,4 millones de venezolanos han decidido abandonar -en muchos casos A PIE- el país.

Hola les voy hacer un hilo para intentar explicar a grandes rasgos que es lo que ha estado pasando en #Venezuela y el por qué de su crisis, síganme @Poeta70 @ma_osuna7 @danimede94 @vamoluda @jcordoba3 #Historia #hilosdehistoria
La historia de #Venezuela estará ligada su riqueza mineral, aunque parezca paradójico el ser un país lleno de #petróleo #oro y minerales será un factor determinante para la actual crisis económica. #hilosdehistoria
En 1910 se descubre #petróleo en #Venezuela y en menos de una década el país se convierte en uno de los mayores exportadores de este mineral, haciendo que haya una gran bonanza, se pague la deuda externa y se convierta en la nación más boyante de américa latina #hilosdehistoria

After six months of political crisis and high levels of violence in #Nicaragua, the @IACHR has registered 325 deaths, including those of 21 police officers. Repression and violence cannot be the response of a democratic state to the demands of its people.
#MESENI of the @IACHR registered the death of 24 children and adolescents. The Commission calls on the state to disclose information about the investigations pertaining to these deaths as well as in regards to the total number of deaths in #Nicaragua.
In #Nicaragua over 300 persons are currently detained due to incidents related to the protests: 8 of whom are beneficiaries of precautionary measures. @IACHR documented unfounded charges and observed non-compliance when it comes to the right to a fair trial of those prosecuted.

Today’s the 39 anniversary of the Sandinista revolution. Managua is out to celebrate the apparent defeat of a soft coup that paralyzed #Nicaragua. I’m here to document a side of the story omitted by Western media. A thread follows on some of what I’ve learned. Vid & print later.
Yesterday I visited Radio Ya, private leftist radio station that is top rated in Managua and supplied social services to locals regardless of their politics. It was burned to the ground by the opposition. 22 staffers escaped with their lives.
Staff of @nuevaya work out of a small makeshift office now. Those working the night shift must sleep in to avoid right-wing violence. “We are hunted by hit men,” station director Denis Schwartz told me. Its sports reporters were recently accosted by gunmen on motorcycles.

Francisco Uriel Molina, franciscano, adepto de la Teología de Liberación (#jesuita) es miembro de la "comisión de la verdad" para "investigar" muertes de manifestaciones.

Los nicaragüenses serán engañados, esa comisión no defiende la verdad.
Anexo (86) #Colombia Gustavo #Petro dice "esto pasa por estudiar teología".

Y se refiere a cuando estudiaba TEOLOGÍA de la LIBERACIÓN (invento #jesuita) en el colegio La Salle de Zipaquirá, cerca de Bogotá.

An informational thread on the events currently happening in Nicaragua to inform English speakers and countries overseas. Twitter do your thing and spread the news. Don’t let them silence us.

Nicaragua is practically under a dictatorship by the FSLN (Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional), and the current president has been in power since 2007 (he was also previously in power from 1979 to 1990). Despite this we still continued to be a country with many liberties.
However during the past weeks, things have changed due to a massive fire that burned up an important biological reserve.
The gov. was clearing land at the time to build roads and it’s not hard to guess the wildfire was caused by their own loss of control. They denied this claim

Real interference in election:
#Lebanon, 1950s: CIA provided funds to support the campaigns of Camille Chamoun & selected parliamentary candidates; other funds were targeted against candidates who had shown less than total enchantment with US interference.
Real interference in election campaigns:
#Indonesia, 1955:
A million dollars were dispensed by the CIA to a centrist coalition’s electoral campaign in a bid to cut into the support for President #Sukarno’s party and the Indonesian #Communist_Party.
#Vietnam, 1955:
The US was instrumental in South Vietnam canceling the elections scheduled to unify North and South because of the certainty that the North Vietnamese communist leader, Ho Chi Minh, would easily win.
