Walk for Peace, Justice and Human Rights in Nicaragua

Managua, Aug 22 (Prensa Latina) A walk for peace, life, justice and human rights for all will be held today in Nicaragua, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the assault on the National Palace, the prelude to the triumph of the Sandinista Popular Revolution (1979).

The Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) has called for a march in all departments of the country to demand that the coup supporters pay for the crimes committed during the attempt that began in April.

Most of Nicaraguans demand justice and reparation for the victims of terrorism that led to the deaths of at least 198 people, hundreds of wounded and considerable economic damage, according to government statistics.

In Managua, the march will take place from Plaza de las Victorias, passing through the Metrocentro roundabout to the Hugo Chávez Square.

Actions like these have increased in recent weeks, as a large part of the people took to the streets to demand peace and support for the FSLN, amid the socio-political crisis that the nation has gone through for four months.

Nicaraguans will also commemorate the 40th anniversary of the assault on the National Palace, a heroic action that overthrew the dictatorship of Anastasio Somoza.
