Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The Ortega regime has continued repressing and killing civilians in Nicaragua as reported by journalists and condemned by various international organizations such as the Organization of American States (OAS), the United Nations (UN), and the “Asociacion Nicaraguense Pro Derechos Humanos” (ANPDH);
  • Canada condemned the violence at a recent meeting of the OAS; and
  • The United States of America has recently applied sanctions to several Ortega Officials using the Magnitsky Law.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to take concrete steps against Ortega regime officials implicated in severe human rights violations and corruption by applying sanctions through Canada’s own Magnitsky Law.
