Barricades Reinforced Follows Violence in Chinandega, Masaya, Granada

The barricades on the main roads that connect Managua with the interior of the country were reinforced by anti-government protesters

Despite the high hopes (and the let down) of the Thursday afternoon meeting between the Episcopal Conference and President Daniel Ortega, the barricades in the main roads that connect Managua with the interior of the country were reinforced by anti-government protesters.

The reinforcement follows as a consequence of violent acts registered in Chinandega, Masaya, Granada and Ciudad Antigua, Nueva Segovia.

For example, in Nindirí pass, between Managua and Masaya, there are seven barricades, reported reporters of EL NUEVO DIARIO. The barricade was also maintained at the Ticuantepe roundabout, on the Masaya road.

In Granada, many residents were lined up on Thursday at gas stations, pharmacies and banks; and local market merchants placed their products at the entrance of the city to sell them. The supermarkets are already out.

The access roads to Masaya and Granada have been blocked by residents of Masaya who fear the arrival of more armed groups linked to the Government, whom they point to looting business and attacking citizens in protest.

In Chinandega there were violent clashes on Wednesday night, resulting in three protesters killed.

The “tranques” (barricades) have been maintained temporarily or permanent almost throughout the country since May 10, as part of the protest in demand for justice and democratization.

The blocking of the roads remained yesterday in Mulukukú and Santa Rita, while in Siuna, Rosita, Bonanza, Prinzapolka, Bilwi and Waspam. In the Northern Caribbean region, there is a shortage of basic products and gas.

In Estelí, for the third consecutive week, opponents of the government maintain a stop at the southern exit of the city
