Ortega Silent On OAS and U.S. During Sandinista Anniversary Speech

President Daniel Ortega, in his speech in celebration of the 39th anniversary of the Sandinista revolution – that first brought him to power – in Managua on Thursday, did not mention in his speech this Thursday, the resolution of the Organization of American States (OAS) of condemnation against his government issued last Wednesday, for the violation of human rights in the country.

Nor did the president comment on the support of 21 countries to the resolution condemning the violence and repression during the protests of the last 3 months.

Nor did he refer to the position held by the United States Government, which, through various officials including Vice President Mike Pence, has called for an end to the repression, the disarming of paramilitaries and the search for a way out of the crisis through the dialogue, including early elections.

Ortega, however, did blame “satanical criminals,” Catholic bishops and the U.S. for the wave of unrest he has violently sought to extinguish.

He did accuse the bishops of being part of a coup plot and lend the churches to store weapons. He said that it hurt him to have to say that “the bishops were committed to the coup plotters.”
