The escalation in Nicaragua has drawn more attention from the popular and peace forces in Latin America and the Caribbean, and in the entire world. The signs of foreign interference, in particular from the US, are already clear in the domestic dispute which, from legitimate demands in the economic realm, has escalated to the violence today seen on the streets, despite the calls for dialogue from the government of President Daniel Ortega and the commitments he has made.

On Wednesday July 11 2018 a demonstration against NATO took place on Wenceslas Square in the centre of Prague, Czech Republic.
