Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • The Nicaraguan government, under President Daniel Ortega, has responded to peaceful protests calling for his resignation with widespread, lethal violence;
  • Since April 18, 2018, over 260 protestors have been killed by Nicaraguan police and paramilitary groups, over 1000 have been injured, and countless others have been captured or tortured, gone missing, or been denied essential supplies; and
  • This violent repression is having a disastrous effect on Nicaragua’s infrastructure and the wellbeing of its people.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to (a) clearly and unequivocally condemn the violence being committed against the Nicaraguan people; (b) strongly urge the Nicaraguan government to cease its violence and respect the democratic and human rights of the people; and (c) encourage the investigation of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the Organisation of American States into the violence that has occurred in Nicaragua since April 18, 2018.
