Las sanciones internacionales en una Nicaragua doblegada por el miedo y la violencia

Las sanciones internacionales contra los actores cómplices de las atrocidades cometidas en Nicaragua han surtido el efecto de disminuir su influencia, y siguen arrinconando a los perpetradores. Contrario a las mentiras de Rosario Murillo, las sanciones no afectan al pueblo porque éstas poseen precisión en el impacto. La sanción es un es un juicio justo frente a la privación física, económica y política que ha causado la dictadura.

The Political Situation in Nicaragua

Despite receiving a minority of political support, the balance of power is in favor of the regime who dominates the repressive apparatus and possesses economic resources to maintain control and seek a dynastic succession. The magnitude of repression, as well as the noise of various international conflicts, render international mobilization difficult. However, the international community must confer greater importance to the Nicaraguan crisis in the global agenda.

Como parte de su política represiva, Daniel Ortega también ha violado derechos laborales, ambientales y empresariales, que están tutelados por el Tratado de Libre Comercio con Estados Unidos, y como resultado ha expuesto al régimen a la demanda de cómo ejercer una presión internacional más efectiva.
