In April 2018 massive political protests started in Nicaragua. Many people opposed planned pensioners reform and called for resignation of President Ortega. More than 300 people were killed, approximately 2830 persons were injured and about 700 people are missing. What are the prospects for the future?

Edipcia Dubon, Unrecognized Member of the National Assembly,  Nicaragua, and Jose Miguel Vivanco, Executive Director of Americas Division, Human Rights Watch, U.S., will be the keynote speakers. Mario Lionnet Valenti, Nicaraguan politician will be the moderator of the event.
