CWN Editor's Note: “The Nicaraguan crisis started in April last year when students took to the streets to defend the rights of pensioners, who were brutally beaten during a peaceful march,” the report noted. “This event sparked the national crisis and the [Ortega regime’s] terrible repression against the students, causing a high number of deaths and more than 600 political prisoners.”
