Ortega launches a cry of violence on the anniversary of the Sandinista revolution

20 Jul 2021  |  El País América
Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega presided over the 42nd anniversary of the Sandinista revolution, using the event to reaffirm his power and perpetuate his rule by eliminating electoral competition, evidenced by the imprisonment of opposition candidates. The event, lacking international presence, highlighted the regime's isolation, especially from traditional allies like Cuba, Venezuela, and Bolivia. Ortega aligned with Russia, condemning the U.S. and EU for sanctions and claiming they want to subdue nations like Nicaragua. The event also served to threaten opponents and criticize business leaders, while Ortega claimed his government overcame a coup attempt funded by the 'empire.' Opposition figures criticized Ortega's authoritarian stance and the increasing isolation of his regime.

Harris says she’s working to address ‘root cause’ of border crisis

29 Apr 2021  |  New York Post
Vice President Kamala Harris discussed the root causes of illegal immigration in an interview on ABC's 'Good Morning America.' She emphasized that people from the Northern Triangle, which includes Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, often migrate not because they want to leave their homes, but due to lack of opportunities or to flee harm. Harris highlighted factors such as hurricanes, gang violence, and drought affecting these countries. Despite not visiting the border herself, she has been working with cabinet officials and foreign leaders to invest in the Northern Triangle to address these issues. Harris acknowledged that the problem is complex and solutions will require a long-term commitment.

Kidney Failure: The Drama of Dying Waiting for Dialysis in a Public Hospital

30 Oct 2020  |  Despacho 505
Nicaragua faces a public health crisis as chronic kidney disease (CKD) has become alarmingly prevalent, particularly among the poor who cannot afford private treatment. The public healthcare system is overwhelmed, with a significant gap between the number of patients needing dialysis and the availability of services. Despite the government's claims of progress, the reality is stark, with many dying while waiting for treatment. The situation is exacerbated by a lack of data, insufficient nephrologists, and a failed peritoneal dialysis program due to poor living conditions. The disease, once thought to be confined to sugarcane workers in the west, is now widespread, with no clear understanding of its causes.

In Granada, Nicaragua, citizens are divided between those who defy the coronavirus and those who fear it. Photographer Maynor Valenzuela captured the city's state as Nicaraguans begin to relax self-imposed measures due to a lack of government leadership in facing the health emergency.
