The People’s Health Movement (PHM) expresses its solidarity with the people of Nicaragua, with the student movement, the youth, the elderly, the pensioners and all those who are fighting for a dignified Social Security system and for the right to live in a democratic country, and against anti-popular economic measures, the control of the media, the destruction of the environment by extractive industries, and the potential construction of the inter-oceanic canal by a Chinese company with high economic and social costs.
We are deeply moved and mournful for the dead, wounded, disappeared and detained, and we call for:
The Government of Nicaragua to stop the violence by the National Police and the Sandinista Youth;
The impressive Nicaraguan popular mobilization to continue denouncing and fighting peacefully for their demands.
Our heart is with the people of Nicaragua.
