Police Shoot At Protesters. Sunday March In Managua Turns Violent!

The Civic Alliance for Justice and Democracy rejected the report of the National Police about the violence registered in the march on Sunday in Managua, blaming the organizers and participants, whom they point out acting according to the “strategy of coup groups”.

For the Civic Alliance, the version of the National Police constitutes an “alteration of the reality and threats”.

One person was injured by a bullet fired by police, another sustaining other injuries during the police attack, according to the version by the Civil Alliance.

In the official report the responsibility for the violence is on the organizers and protesters.

However, the Alliance emphasized that “the march was attacked by agitators and demonstrators who fired shots in the air, evidenced in videos broadcast in various media and on different social networks, wounding a doctor and that led to the burning of a police unit.”

Finally, the coalition of businessmen, students and civil society reaffirmed that the demonstrations they have organized in the past and that of yesterday have been peaceful.

“We reject the idea that any form of protest guaranteed in our Constitution, as a coup, is indicated,” the text indicates.

According to demonstrators who participated in the March of the flags, the attack was executed by Sandinista sympathizers who were traveling aboard three trucks without license plates that carried red and black flags (Sandinista colors).

Upon reaching the outskirts of Camino de Oriente, the occupants of the trucks fired shots at the people, injuring Dr. Carlos Fletes, a specialist in Urology, who was impacted by a bullet in the left arm and in the chest. The  Vivian Pellas Hospital, where he was admitted, did not provide details, but it was known that his condition is stable.
