The future of migrant caravans
"More grand caravan is one of those phrases which feels intractable associated with the recently elapsed donald trump era a term which decade sense will like coffee or very stateful genius or four seasons total landscaping separate. Those who can recall this benighted epoch. From those born too late or those who not altogether unreasonably drank too much the migrant caravan. You may recall was one of the vast menagerie of bogeymen and hobgoblins which trump and his media cheerleaders deployed to profitably inflame. The voters and viewers the caravan was telling a marauding horde of insurgents bent on taking your jobs stealing your women perpetrating terrorism proselytizing communism or whatever paranoid fantasy. You were having yourself. The migrant caravan was reason to build that wall. Lock up your daughters stay tuned to fox. Welcome the tucker. Carlson vote republican and generally run around yelping to set by angry wasps. Shortly after having set fire to your own trousers another migrant caravan is on the move now it will be instructive and hopefully at least somewhat heartening to see how the administration of donald trump successor response before we get into that however it's probably proper to be clear about what we mean when we say migrant caravan as outlined above it has been repeatedly slammed up into something other than what it is by various people and organizations whose good faith cannot alas always be taken for granted. Thousands of central american migrants are vowing to continue their march to the us border even though president trump wants to turn them away the migrant caravans about which donald trump became agitated where a phenomenon which pete in late two thousand and eighteen. They were mass trudges of several thousand migrants setting out from central america and plotting doggedly towards the united states where they hope to find safety perchance prosperity. The constituents off the caravans were from honduras. Guatemala nicaragua el salvador and mexico. All countries offering the less fortunate citizens plentiful reasons for leaving political instability gangs crop failure crime drugs poverty etc. The caravan on the move right now is estimated at some eight thousand strong and appears to have originated in the honduran city of san pedro. Soula as off this broadcast. Its chances of reaching its goal. Mexico's border with the united states appears slender early this week. The caravan was intercepted as it crossed. Guatemala guatemalan military and police who detained hundreds of migrants and scattered others with teargas. Nearly a thousand people have already been sent back to honduras and guatemala's chief immigration official modena's has laid down a hardline declaring that you cannot and will not get through president joe. Biden's rhetorical response will be more humane and compassionate the president donald trump's low though that represents but the outcome might not be much different biden's domestic policy advisor. Susan rice has already pointedly given interviews to spanish language media emphasizing that nobody should assume that the us mexico border will be flung. Open on day one. The administration biden previously. Served that of president. Barrack obama deported more than three million people. This latest caravan is obviously not the first large scale migrant and refugee x. flow of times and it won't be the lost. It seems reasonable to assume indeed that any noteworthy disparity in covid nineteen vaccinations between rich countries and poor ones will lead to still further people hitting the road and given what would be reasonable concerns about spreading the virus. Prompt even less compromising responses from destination countries than some. We have already seen what will likely not happen. Regrettably will be the large scale descent of any com- clear-headed logic on the subject in the united states or anywhere else. Those who are furiously against immigration will continue to insist that imigrants ra menace that asylum seekers. Bogus that we should build walls and turn around boats. Those who are passionately in favour of immigration will continue refusing to countenance the idea that countries are entitled to make decisions about who comes and who goes and indeed that it's better that countries do as transparent legal process around migration and asylum lynn's immigrants and refugees va legitimacy they need and deserve and deprives shrieking xenophobes of oxygen as is the case with this and far too many other issues however the loudest voices on both sides will be largely motivated not by their actual opinions on the issue by the visceral loathing of their domestic political opponents and the caravans and the boats will keep coming
Trump wants $2,000 coronavirus stimulus check
"The covert 19 relief check going to Americans. Congress approved $600 checks in the bill passed this week. The president wants to more than double that he made this announcement in a video released on social media Tuesday night. Throughout the summer, Democrats cruelly blocked covert relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme left wing agenda and influence the election. Then, a few months ago, Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently needed help to the American people. It's taken forever. However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace. For example, among the more than 5000 pages in this bill, which nobody in Congress has red because of its length and complexity. It's called the covert Relief Bill. It has almost nothing to do with covert. This bill contains $85.5 million for assistance to Cambodia, $134 million to Burma $1.3 billion for Egypt and the Egyptian military, which will go out and buy almost exclusively Russian military equipment, $25 million for democracy and gender programs in Pakistan. $505 million to believes Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama $40 million for the Kennedy Center in Washington, D C, which is not even open for business $1 billion for the Smithsonian and an additional $154 million for the National Gallery of Art. Likewise, these facilities are essentially not open $7 million for Reef Fish management $25 million to combat Asian carp $2.5 million to count the number of amberjack fish. In the Gulf of Mexico a provision to promote the breeding of fish in federal hatcheries, $3 million in poultry production technology $2 million to research the impact of down trees. $566 million for construction projects at the FBI. The bill also allows stimulus checks for the family members of illegal aliens, allowing them to get up to $1800. Was each this is far more than the Americans were given. Despite all of this wasteful spending, and much more than $900 billion package provides hardworking taxpayers with only $600 each in relief payments and not enough money is given to small businesses. And in particular restaurants whose owners have suffered so grievously. They were only given a deduction for others to use in business there restaurant for two years, this two year period must be withdrawn, which will allow the owners to obtain financing and get their restaurants back in condition. Congress contaminated at a much later date, but two years is not acceptable. It's not enough. Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests while sending the bare minimum to the American people who needed. It wasn't their fault. It was China's fault, not their fault. I'm asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600. $2000 or $4000 for a couple. I'm also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation and to send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a covert relief package. And maybe that administration will be me and we will get it done. Thank you very much. Statement recorded by
Drug traffickers fuel deforestation in Central America
"To limit climate change. It's critical to protect tropical forests but fourth preservation efforts in central america face a formidable foe the illegal drug trade narko deforestation refers to deforestation. That somehow can be attributed to the activity of drug trafficking organizations bernardo aguiar gonzalez of the neo tropic foundation of costa rica's studies the problem he says u. s. crackdowns on drug smuggling have driven traffickers into protected forested areas. There they can more easily evade law enforcement then they cut down trees trucks and private planes can transport drugs in and out. You actually can put landing strips that are located in areas that would be hard to detect traffickers also clear swaths of forest for farming and ranching businesses that they create in order to launder drug money. Research shows that in protected areas of honduras. Nicaragua and guatemala between thirty and sixty percent of forest loss is likely associated with cocaine trafficking. So aguilar gonzales says drug trafficking and deforestation must be understood as interconnected problems and solve together.
interview With Kristen Putnam-Walker
"Welcomed extraordinary women radio chris. It is great to have you join me today. Thank you so much candidates great. Be here so one of the core values of extraordinary women. Radio is impact trading impact. Making a difference in you helped over a hundred philanthropists strategically allocate over half a billion dollars in grants and gifts. I mean that's that's just incredible first of all So congratulations for that. How did you find your passion for philanthropy. A great question i. I'm not entirely sure to be perfectly honest where it started. I remember back in his will which was way back in the day. I'm being very passionate about trying to change. Us policy and in the third world is be caught at the global south In especially in latin america and became very involved as a student activist In trying in el salvador and central america nicaragua and trying to create a lot of change there. in fact. it's funny i I saw myself in washington d. c. During college i had organized a contingent of students my university to travel to these see and participate in a demonstration and that trend into a civil disobedience unexpectedly. So i got arrested for somebody you know. These are the days of cell phones right way to reach anybody nonetheless. I boarded this bus. Where all of us are being taken off to the washington. Dc place department. I suppose and i sit down my rights and musette next at asner actor right. The mary tyler moore show which means hopefully. Hopefully your your listeners. Know that show in high show about the next three hours talking to asner. I was probably twenty. That's awesome you know what i know. It was very fun but one of the first questions he asked me was. What got you involved in. this was it. Your parents are your parents political or whatnot and at the time quite frankly i didn't have the best answer i didn't entirely. No i just knew that. Once i learned about injustice in the world i felt compelled to act on it and so i think really that kind of fuels my passion and you know in philanthropy one of the benefits. I think of being a funder or advising funders as you get to be you get to put in a variety of positions places and experiences that you wouldn't otherwise have and so it's a privilege related to be able to talk to different kinds of people like i've worked on issues related to gang violence in california. I was in salvador during the civil war. I was in nicaragua during their presidential elections as an observer I'm doing some work now with an organization called body. Osuna does in santa cruz california along with today. Another actor danny glover who's a big supporter of theirs. And they're doing a lot of work on prison reform in california and all of the Know the ways in which the prison system is working against us. Not for us. And so i guess what drives me and release is seeing the impact Seeing people who are at the front lines during this work In creating change and being able to be part of it you might be part of it for a day on a site visit or he might be part of that because it's a project that you're working on but it really is such a privilege to be able to connect with so many different people who are doing such good work in the world
Hurricane Iota batters Central America
"Devastating devastating devastating devastating devastating devastating hurricanes hurricanes hurricanes hurricanes hurricanes hurricanes have have have have have have pummeled pummeled pummeled pummeled pummeled pummeled Central America on November 3rd hurricane at the first struck Nicaragua and then made its way to Honduras and Guatemala. According to the Red Cross. More than two million people in the region were affected by floods and landslides caused by the hurricane. Then this week, another hurricane Hurricane iota made landfall in Central America delivering yet another blow to the region. The two storms back to back aren't only devastating to communities in Central America, but are also complicating efforts to mitigate covert 19. Joining us now to talk about what's happening on the ground is Jeff EARNS two freelance journalist based in Honduras. Jeff Thanks for being with us For having me. So what are conditions on the ground in Honduras right now? Right now. Much of Honduras is underwater, particularly in the Northwest Sula Valley region, which is home to about two million people, and it's really the economic motor. Of the country, So the fact that so much of this area in particular is underwater is really indicative of how damaging it is. Given that roughly 40% of the GDP or more is produced in this region, but really after iota we have much more widespread damage. A lot across the whole country was a much larger storm. So just particular across the North Coast and and the West, there's still rising waters in some parts. We've lost a lot of bridges and roads and other infrastructure. There's many people are currently displaced by the flooding. The storm's first struck Nicaragua before going through Honduras and Guatemala. What were the effects in those two countries? With a to it was damaging. But it went through a pretty lowly populated area of Nicaragua. But iota was so much larger. That it really hit harder in Nicaragua, and even the winds were harder to sew. In Nicaragua. We're seeing pretty widespread damage flooding even in the capital, Managua. And south of it to Nicaragua's pretty devastated this 0.2. You've been reporting on this region in Honduras for awhile have how have the government's responded to efforts on the ground? The government's response has been heavily criticized ahead of eight actually scheduled this special holiday for that week week in in order order to to try try to to Remote Remote domestic domestic tourism tourism and and stimulate stimulate the the economy, economy, which which has has been been really really hit hit hard hard by by the the cove cove in in 19 19 pandemic, and there was a clear reticence by the government to Cancel that vacation, so they did not emit alerts or or evacuation orders, which led Tens of thousands of people in completely caught off guard being and then ended up getting trapped on the roof, some for as many as five days. And, of course, That led to two more deaths, which we really don't know how much yet because the water Has never been able to fully received from eight to before We got hit by iota, so there's really clear negligence by the government here and then in terms of responding They're completely overwhelmed by it. And they clearly unprepared and there's a real question of how they're spending. Their resource is the government just a year ago. Just from Israel. This Folks from war and yet their emergency response unit doesn't have the boats necessary to go to the healthy, strong currents that was seen from the footing in order to rescue people. Until the water gets down. The people are very upset, definitely more than ever with with the government and this could definitely lead to even more political instability than we've seen down here in the past and that political instability Could also sperm or migration out of the region. Is that right? Coming towards where? There That's the United States are moving towards Mexico or other places this people try to survive. Absolutely. There's already people organizing on social media caravans that looks like they're planning for January, most of them whether or not that materializes. There's just no doubt we're going to see it another tick in migration over the next year, particularly As Kobe 19 travel Strick Shins are eased. I took so many people already. Particularly the young people who just see no opportunity. They have no work, and now they've lost everything. They really have nothing to lose, and they see migrating as the quickest way to be able to help their families to rebuild and and recoup everything they've lost. United States government has limited at least one of the Trump administration migration from many of these countries. At the same time, it's asked many Central American countries to help it with its asylum policies. Has the U. S government sent any aid? To these countries as they struggled to deal with the blows from these hurricanes. The lack of leadership from the U. S. Following this crisis is really Shocking. There's been no word from the State Department or from the White House, other than U S aid, which is down here most recently after Iota they designated $17 million to the region. Half of which is going to Honduras and then Also the U. S. Military, based on here has been a source of rescue missions, which has definitely been very helpful. But $17 million We're talking about billions and billions of dollars in damage. And really in 1998 when Hurricane Mitch hit, which is the worst natural disaster in center America To date, it was US leadership that mobilized support from the global community. And that is completely lacking at this point. President elect Biden has expressed his concern and support for the region, so there's hope that when he takes office He will take up that traditional leadership role of the U. S. To help one of its neighbors will be watching to see how this pans out. Jeff earns two freelance reporter based in Honduras. Thanks for being with us and stay safe. Thanks for having me

"Now. Eight. On nicaragua. Nice that's saw her real name. She asked for an alias. I know I read the question and she recommended Ana. I read it, so Ana from Nicaragua says I'm in love with my boss, should I quit my job now for the deeds. He is one weird, dude. Not the regular guy who knows the difference between friends joking around and flat out. Flirting also doesn't understand that most of what he does his boss, and his girlfriend would probably consider wildly inappropriate. He tickles me in various body, parts, Texas at weird hours. He's obsessed with my ex and doesn't think that we should see each other. I can't really quit my job because the situation in my country is not ideal right now. And then she told us to Google it is, she told us to Google Nicaragua. So quitting would be very bad for me being in love with it makes it hard to do my job at affects my moods and because of it, he now thinks I'm an incredibly complicated and hard person to deal with. But in reality, it's just my frustration and sadness, getting out of hand, boss guy, has a girlfriend, she's a waste of space, literally, she does. Nothing treats him horribly. He changes around her becomes quiet and submissive. Everyone knows he's not in a good relationship. Everyone can see it. No one knows what he sees in her. I mean, she's not even physically attractive, please help me, okay? What in the gay hell? So I picked this question for a lot of reasons and not the ones that you would think, or maybe exactly the ones that you would think I am shook. Yes. Does this story not have a hero or a villain? No one is good in this while she does like us. So okay, she likes us. I'm sorry. This is wild from start to finish. It is. And I and I also think so she's twenty. Six which to me, honestly, is pretty young. Okay. So let's just break this down. Okay. Number one, you're not in love. You're not in love. I think that to truly be in romantic love it needs to be reciprocal. Absolutely. I think that there is pining, yes. And there's lusting. Yes. And there is like an like an obsession. Yes. But love like romantic love is something that is like mutual. It's something that's alive. Yeah. Something that Morrison changes and is like an his between and is about a connection between two people. It can't be one-sided at four people, but everyone's gotta be into it. Yes. Okay. So that's number one. So let's just take that I like that. You moved in your seat to gear up more you were like, hold on. Let me take this fucking serious. Okay. So you're not you're not in love to. What you're describing about this guy makes me think not a great guy. Oh, I don't care how weird you are. It is sexual harassment, right? So what's happening is you are being sexually harassed at work. And you think that you're in love with your harasser. Exactly. I think maybe it is something almost like Stockholm syndrome. Yeah. Maybe that special attention that you're getting from your boss is makes you feel special, which makes total sense. Here's the other thing fucking how many times do we give passes to men because they're weird cut to disaster right that they know they know they fucking know and regardless of whether or not, they know they need to change their behavior. It's still wrong. It's still wrong and also on by accident still manslaughter. Right. You say he's beyond weird one can't analyze him as you do a regular guy. So that, that special you're giving him a pass that, like, maybe. You could afford to someone that you weren't in the workplace with. But he is your boss, and he isn't a workplace. He has. Subordinates. Yeah. Therefore he needs to adhere to at certain like rules. Yes. And so in terms of do you need to leave your job. No. You need to report him you need to speak to. HR HR. Oh, I know it's hard to do because who knows what the book, like who knows how it will come back on you. But you do say that his boss would view it as inappropriate. So maybe go to his by. Thank you need to go to his boss..

"Morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Rachel Martin the midterm elections are just a few days away, and as Americans head to the polls, many will be thinking about how their votes could affect their communities or their jobs or their families family is a big consideration for Victoria and Matthew Keller of Denver, Colorado because there's is growing the two got married for years ago after they met at work, and they are now expecting their first baby in just a few short weeks. Do you have a nursery? I'm just curious if you're one of these people who already set up your nursery, or you're just gonna like bear baby. Oh, this is Matt this is Matt he he set up earners three months ago. I if it was up to me he would be in a box. Yeah. Everything's been way too. Well, planned, I have like way too much stuff already, and it's all set up and ready to go. I talked with the Keller's for the last in a series of conversations were bringing you this week that illustrate how our personal intimate lived experiences shape. How we vote Matt? You're originally from Denver is right. Yes. Born and raised and Victoria was your family from. So I was born in Managua Nicaragua. And then in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight my family immigrated to the bay area. Why did they leave Nicaragua? It was in the middle of the civil war. And I think my parents saw the writing on the wall and knew that it wasn't a place that they could really raise your children in a safe environment. Both of my parents were working professionals and got our my dad was a businessman. My mom was a journalist and going from being in a country where they were born and raised and they spoke the language to a country where they didn't speak the language not having a lot of resources and trying to figure out a new society in a new culture was very difficult for them. This is only something that I learned when I was older. My parents were really good at sheltering me, and my brother and sister. Did you feel some kind of poll on your identity, and you hear that from a lot of children of immigrants that they don't feel really American. They don't feel. Really of their home culture. Was it that way for you was I felt like I had at home. We would speak Spanish we would eat different foods. We had different cultures. I grew up in a very predominantly white town. So definitely looked a little bit more different than my classmates. I think that was also something that differentiated me did that sit. Okay with you. No, I was really embarrassed and practically ashamed of being so different all you want. When you're a kid is to fit in. And it was really hard for me when I was younger. But as I got older, I became embarrassed that I had been embarrassed about the way that I grew up and start taking a lot of pride in the fact that I have come from a family of immigrants, and my parents are the quintessential immigrant story, and they were able to build a really good life for me. And my brother and sister here. And you are due in a matter of weeks now. Right. Victoria, November twenty fourth. What kind of conversations have you two had about not just the parenting part? But the responsibility of raising a kid in this political moment, I think the biggest thing is just people are so unwilling to talk to each other that we just yell at each other or block each other on social media. And how do you really move on from a moment when people are really unwilling to speak to each other and have difficult conversations. Let me be clear both of you would identify as Democrats or progressives are both. Yes. Do you intend to vote this year? Yes. Absolutely. And what's going to motivate your vote, definitely the immigration issue. I don't understand how people can have so much hatred for an entire group of people who are just trying to make a better life for themselves. Just the cruelty we've seen with not just the family detentions at the border, but also policies about revisiting naturalized citizens punishing immigrants who use a public assistance when they need a little bit of help getting back on their feet. So they can contribute. One of the things I'm most concerned about because of my family, my background, especially in light of the Cavanaugh confirmation debacle. I'm definitely concerned about reproductive rights. Not just access to abortion. Services but access to birth control services because for me being woman, an integral part of my health, and my ability to lead the life that I want and that all women can lead the lives that they want is to be in control of our own bodies. Just to add on that. I think is sort of expecting father one issue that is more in the forefront of my mind. I at least right now would be gun control, which I'd never really thought about all that much very specifically. But now, it's definitely for some reason seems to be at the back of my mind, do you attach expectations to having a baby? I mean, it's we shouldn't start dreaming for our children's future and living vicariously through them when they're still in utero. But do you find yourself thinking about what your babies can be like the things he or she is going to do nothing specific. I think you know,.

You know, the usual answer from this type of German is that this is a cool financed by international interest and so on. But everybody make our knows that this is not the case strange in a way, isn't it seeing business groups taking this role? Because business groups, it was them wasn't it who played a large role in getting Mr.. Take back into power in two thousand and seven. He basically asked the private sector to give him some kind of support to trust that he was not going to conduct the economic policy that he did in the eighties that his ex probation of of properties and so on. So in order to maintain the economy growing, he had these policies of consulting the private sector leaders. But what happened is in the last ten years or take up basically demolish. The institutionality of the country, you demolished the separations of power. He demolished the independence of the UD this a system, he demolished the independence of the electoral council and he promoted electoral fraud. He did create growth, it great economic growth. I will say that economic growth happened despite or plumber just mentioned in tourism where the tourist industry was growing rapidly despite the complete absence of economic policies regarding tourism, for example. So I would say that these economic growth happen most as a result of the investments of the private sector and not thanks to the economic policies. Optimistic, I'm optimistic because I think violence cannot stand forever. Our porpoises tried to convince Ortega that is better for him. It's been for the country to reach a peaceful solution to this crisis because unfortunately, in the history of Mike onto the two hundred years of independence are being.

"Business daily from the BBC where we are asking what is happening in Nicaragua today after months of political violence in the country who really is responsible President. Daniel Ortega. The focus of so much of the protests at the moment was once seen as a hero by many in Nicaragua and abroad, a socialist revolutionary who nationalized industry and tried to redistribute wealth towards the dispossessed. He was ousted from power after eleven years at the helm in nineteen ninety. The country had been ravaged by war with US-backed rebels at the time. Dan about eleven years ago, he made a comeback, rebranded as rather less of a radical figure. Now a man willing to forge new alliances. Here's the analyst Manuela Roscoe. Again, there were two factors that will allow him to secure. It's near absolute political control of institutions. One was. Receiving the blessing of the Catholic church that he had persecuted in the eighties and Sakon having an agreement, partial packed with business -ociety, Nicaragua to promise that he will not confiscate make the same mistakes in the nineteen eighties in exchange, the private sector will cooperate by allowing the government to perform his poli policies as desire by tagger. The business community began to feel on easy about the government when they basically were controlling practically every sphere of society and political institutions. There was not check imbalances by two thousand eleven diner. Take a a tactic. One of his most successful tactics is to investigate the private dirt that politicians business individuals have from tax evasion to other forms of corruption to conflict, some private property, or even. Allegations of sex abuse, for example, and he uses that information as a means to keep people under control. And yet at all of this time, Nicaragua is growing right? It's growing economically. The business community was welcoming of this growth up to a point. They started saying that parallel to this growth, corruption was also growing, especially corruption within the family. For example, he assigned the role of investment promotion to his son and he assigned to the other son, the role of handling the distribution of gasoline coming from Venezuelan oil sales. The extent of corruption began to show that the agreement that the private sector leaders have with Ortega was no longer sustainable Manuel Rosca well neighboring countries, and the US are calling on Mr Ortega end. Violence to accept dialogue with the protesters and Nicaraguan business leaders. Well, they may have played a part in allowing Mr Ortega back into office, but now they aren't joining in those cools when Sebastian Chamara is an academic. He's a leader of the Civic Alliance for Justice and democracy, which is trying to bring about a peaceful resolution. The level of violence and brutality has been extremely hard in economic used to have an idea. Two weeks ago paramilitary people disservice of the gourmet opened fire to a church where about one hundred students tried to find refuge there and this paramilitaries attack the temple for fifteen hours live munitions snipers AK forty, seven. This is the kind of retaliated we are talking about. It recently made the claim that opposition groups might be funding some of these paramilitaries. Yeah. Well, he has given four interviews and he has stated. At four different origins of this parliamentary. So here's been very radical, but everybody Nicaragua knows that this berm militaries are at the service of the Nicaraguan police. There's ample evidence. What is the economic impact of this kale's? Turmoil isn't very dramatic. Last year, two thousand seventeen. We grew at five percent. Now, new estimates is negative five point, six percent, which means that Nicaragua will pass from being one of the three best comic performance in the western hemisphere to be at the last ex- except with the the case of Venezuela, the last position on in economic growth again, from five percent positive to almost six percent negative.

Only tourism was a number one source of foreign revenue in the past two years, but Valenti fears could be lost. If Nicaragua's viewed as unstable tourism companies have already let go around a third of their workers right now there there is a round about thirty thirty five percent that has sent home. Because of the companies cannot allow themselves to pay their salaries, but that number that percentage could grow. If the situation doesn't change.

But let's Qassam the well went missing a few days after the attack. This is just so sad and the thing that makes this conflict different than a lot of other Latin American political stories. In fact, even got Agua from just thirty five years ago is that this is no longer a typical left versus, right? Kind of conflict? No, exactly. So like the left is split and there are these different factions, right? So there are students and protestors who believed Daniel Ortega is a -tarian and needs to go, and they see themselves as the left. But then we also have what are called Daniela's people who are in support of Daniel Ortega and they also see themselves as the left as continuing the Sandinista revolution. One of the things that those who still support the nealer bigger have been saying, look sure than your you know is authoritarian fine. Sure. Paying sold the rights to canal in the secret deal, but whatever you know, you have to focus on the positives. Right? And the positives are that if. He leaves under these conditions than what's gonna come next is going to be a right wing government, and so it's better to have, you know, a bad leftist government than a right wing government. So let's put up with all this. Let's put up with those state repression. It's put up with the police brutality because what would happen next is going to be terrible for Nicaragua. And there are other done these as well who say that the protesters are actually part of a right wing conspiracy to overthrow the government. And that seems to be the way the government sees it as well, which given the history of US intervention in Central America and Nikola west specifically is kind of an understandable conspiracy theory. So the people who support yet they got, they say that they're part of the left, but sort of the people who are trying to overthrow him and Victoria says that those on the right feel like this is basically just proof of what they already knew saying.

"Around the same time. There's this wave of anti corruption protests all over the region in when Dudas and what the Malla. And that's all the say that you know, these protests were normal, but wasn't more more is what happened next. The police response was aggressive. They used rubber bullets and tear gas against peaceful protesters, and the situation quickly escalated. In another video. From the same day, a young man lays bloodied on the street with a crowd around him according to the person who uploaded the video. He's a university student who has shot dead by the police. Even though these protests started out about the canal and social security police brutality became the focal point of people's anger. More protests started breaking out. In some videos. Another presence begins to emerge. Sometimes they're wearing motorcycle helmets. Often they're wearing shirts with government or sending Easter slogans on them, and they're almost always in groups in the videos. They're described as to bus or mobs, and they're attacking journalists and activists at the marches. These are members of poor take groups that start showing up at the protests. In this video, you can see the March passing by this guy's taking photos off on the side and mob. People grab the camera, throw it on the floor and just punching him inner daily briefing to the nation recital, you'll moody or the vice president and Ortega's wife had this to say about the protesters this pull a fume political.

By the end of the week, nearly twenty seven people were dead. It was a level of violence against protesters that hadn't been seen in the country for decades. What they withdrew the proposal for social security reforms a few days later, but also said that if protesters didn't stop that, he would take measures to regain peace in the country which sounded to a lot of folks like availed threat. There was a point where the government big government could have stepped back and said, oh, we're sorry, we made a mistake and we will punish those individuals who were involved in those specific acts of violence against an armed civilians who have a right to protest peacefully, but they didn't. Protests continued.

And then at the same time pro Tatum in the streets become more militant and the begin to evolve like you remember, I was describing them before and they're wearing the motorcycle helmets and they're carrying sticks while now you see them and they're decked out in military fatigues, and they have automated weapons, and people start referring to them as paramilitaries who are they? Well, the government hasn't formally acknowledged these groups, but a report by Amnesty International claims. What is already widely believed which is that the government and the police are working alongside these paramilitary groups to get rid of the opposition. The paramilitaries will often travel with the police. And so that's how you know that they're link. Their affiliates with the police is because the the right there and they see armed men with ski masks and they don't do anything about it. They all get. Into the same vehicles, and they're all in the same places at the same time by shooting at the same people. And something to keep in mind is that this is a super messy situation and much of the information we have comes from videos uploaded to YouTube and social media, and it can be really hard to verify information, but it's estimated that clashes between protesters and police or supporters have resulted in around three hundred debt. The vast majority of the dead are protesters, but some police and per military members have died as well a week ago anti or take protestors held a general strike and student protesters who had taken the National University were attacked as pro, take a group shot into a church on campus where students had barricaded themselves in two people were reportedly killed..

The president of Nicaragua made a deal with the company based out of Hong Kong called h K n d, the Hong Kong, Nicaragua canal development, investment company. And basically what he did was he granted them a fifty year concession to build an operate canal, Nicaragua for years. China's wanted a canal to compete with the Panama Canal, but there was no transparency around this. He granted the company rights over any land that they chose even land that was already owned by private citizens. And the company was also permitted to sell the rights of the canal to whoever they chose. And this is a really big deal because what data was allowing the Chinese to do was essentially sliced the country in half and it wasn't even bigger deal that he hadn't consulted with anyone in the country about this. They found out about it after the fact. And then the second thing. So this year or take proposed major social security reforms, the changes increased the amount paid into the social security system by workers and employers, but reduced the pensions of retired workers. So basically what that means is that people would be paying more into the social security system, but we receiving less benefits when they retire. It's meant to boost social security in the country because it's in a deficit right now. And so these protests start in response to the social security reforms, but they're also about all of these other things that have just kind of added up over time. In this video from the first day of the protest, you can see some young people at the National University. They're standing around some of them have signs in their hand, and then suddenly everyone starts to run. And these were supporters started hurling rocks at them and they're wearing white shirts, and one of them is holding what looks like a big stick..
