    • @Chelita Be safe down there. So there are the Orteguistas (supporters of Daniel Ortega and his wife) and the Sandinistas...(I've heard of them before) and what exactly do they stand for?
    • It works the same way for computers when they are moved ..... bump 'em at your own peril.
    • All this situation is breaking my heart. There is at least one student dead by the police and Orteguistas. Police is supposed to protect people and instead they are attacking them, attacking elderly, neighbors who support and protect the students. We are fearing for own safety. They are already cutting off power, water. It seems this situation is going to spread to the rest of the country since all are affected.   
    • MANAGUA (Reuters) - Thousands of Nicaraguans took to the streets in protest for a second straight day on Thursday as discontent grew over controversial changes to social security that will increase worker and employer payments and reduce future pensions Students in the capital Managua took over of the National University of Engineering, hurling stones and Molotov cocktails as they faced off with riot police, who responded by firing tear gas and rubber bullets. The protests grew in intensity as pensioners were joined by businessmen and university students in several cities. Nicaragua’s vice president and wife of President Daniel Ortega, Rosario Murillo, justified the police response as legitimate defense against “tiny groups.” In Masaya, a stronghold of Ortega’s left-wing Sandinista movement, hundreds of marchers were attacked with sticks by government supporters, leaving some injured. Local television station “100% Noticias,” which was broadcasting the protests live, had its signal abruptly cut. The television station took to Twitter to call the move “arbitrary and illegal.” With the changes which were signed into law earlier this week, employees will now have to contribute 7 percent of their salary to social security, up from a current 6.25 percent. Employers will have to contribute 22.5 percent of salaries from a current 19 percent. Pensioners will also have 5 percent of their pension taken out to be used for medical expenses. The changes to the pension system are aimed at shoring up Nicaragua’s social security system.
