Nicaragua Crisis Update July 13th 2018

in #preppers4 years ago


Things have become much more dangerous in Nicaragua over the past week. Our phones are being monitored as well as Facebook, Youtube, Whatsapp and Twitter. It does not go well for people who are found with photos or videos of the atrocities that are happening here.

This past week there were two mass graves discovered behind a stadium. The death toll continues to rise. We are now over 400 unofficial deaths. I will not be directly posting photos or videos for my safety and that of my family. For now, I can give brief reports in writing because they are not looking at text written in English.

My family and I will be moving to another country but I can not divulge the plans again for our safety. We will find a way to get the word out through third parties in other countries.

We have not seen nor heard from one of our friends in Leon. On the weekend we had heard that the Antimontines were parked in front of his house and three juvenile boys were removed from the house directly in front. The boys were accused of helping at the blockades and were shot execution-style in front of their parents.

This has just come in from a reliable source. Sorry, no photos. The Sandinistas took over a University this afternoon and have hundreds of paid supporters marching from Managua to Masaya on the main highway. They have submitted fake videos to the OEA showing how it was the students burning people alive and murdering people in the streets. Then Ortega's representative said that Nicaragua would no agree to any demands. The final piece de resistance of the speech: they said Trump was financing the terrorism here!

The mortars are flying over my son's house in Managua. Some people at the airport were trying to leave. Don't know if they were part of the groups who came to monitor the situation here or not but all are foreigners and they are being held.

Who knows where this will end, but it won't be a happy ending for anyone.


Stay safe dear friend. What a crazy time for you and your family. We are praying for you and your family.

Thank you, Carey. It has been crazy. I will message you later with a few details.

Be safe and let us hear from you when you can. You and yours are always on my mind. It’s so unbelievable what you all have had to endure. When you get to a safe place, should you need anything, please do not hesitate to ask. ❤️🐓🐓

I will post mundane stuff until later. If I stop posting all together then you know something has happened.

Trump financing terrorism in Nicaragua ? Given the history of egregious US interventions in Nicaragua (over the last 100+ years), why does this seem unlikely ? Has everyone quickly forgotten the Contras, the "School of the Americas", and even their ongoing export of death squads.

Why does this reek of the same invention playbook being implemented in Nicaragua that we have seen Venezuela ? Destabilization, violent protests and economic sanctions.

What's next ? Will we see an another deployment of the "White Helmets" construct, just as we saw Venezuela ?

The escalation will continue along the lines exposed by John Perkins in "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" until Ortega is ousted or ended, and the US gets the compliant leadership for Nicaragua it desires.

There is no doubt that history is repeating its self and this conflict will go on for some time. Everything they try fails. Peace is no longer an option. That went out the window weeks ago.

The Sandanista National Liberation Front are socialists; which is what some people are pushing for here in the United States.. and they are doing what? And Ortega's political affiliation is Sandanista... go figure

The Sandinistas took over a University this afternoon and have hundreds of paid supporters marching from Managua to Masaya on the main highway. They have submitted fake videos to the OEA showing how it was the students burning people alive and murdering people in the streets. Then Ortega's representative said that Nicaragua would no agree to any demands

Oh yes let's bring socialism to ALL countries.
Look at Venezuela? Now it's in Nicaragua where you are... seriously, are people that blind?

Hoping you, your family and all others who have taken refuge in your compound stay safe!

Ortega has swung from Socialist to communist to a dictator in a few short years. Now we have genocide added to the recipe. We had close calls in Managua last night for my son and his family. But they are safe this morning as are we here in the compound...

People of his nature, thinking and political views are ruthless... sad that there are still people like him, his followers and representatives still being permitted to rule.

GLAD your son and family are safe again. I can't even imagine how you sleep, rest or can think with all this turmoil and death happening so close to your home.

I don't. It is constantly on my mind. We try for whatever can be considered normal under the circumstances but it is difficult.

There's a difference between dictators and socialism like in Scandinavia, for clarity!

It's hard to even imagine how you're feeling. The best of luck to you in getting out safely.

Thank you, @deirdyweirdy. Things have changed drastically this afternoon. I did a post about some of the happenings...

I'm praying for you and your family.
This is sad:( but I know HE is protecting you and your family.
Love and peace Nicaragua.

love and prayers xoxo

Thank you, @sunnylife. We do believe He is watching over us and protecting us. Without the prayers, we would not be a safe as we are.

I am sorry to hear it has got to this stage, I am sending you lots of protective energy to surround you and your family, you are in my thoughts and I really envisage you safely getting out of the country xxx

Thank you, @trucklife-family. We have mortar flying over, can hear gunfire, no electricity. The government shut down Claro TV, Internet and cells phones. Ours may be next.

I'm so sad the situation has not improved and you are forced to leave the country of your choice. Admiring your courage for posting, though.

@cecicastor I am praying for you and your families safety and safe exit!
God protect you.

Thank you for the update @cecicastor! Just a minor request, could you add nicaragua to your tags? My bots are looking for that.

I will surely resteem this and spread it far and wide. Thank you for your bravery!

No problem. There has been some trouble tonight as well. My son reports mortar flying over his house and gunfire in his neighbourhood. They have also lost power. Claro (TV, internet, and cells) has been shut down by the government. We have a different provider but we may have no communications soon.
Dramáticos momentos de los estudiantes atrincherados en la UNAN-M...
Esta tarde de viernes 13 julio, los jóvenes estudiantes atrincherados en la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Nicaragua, UNAN-Managua, están siendo atacados por paramilitares enviados por el gobierno de Daniel Ortega.

Los jóvenes han permanecido en el recinto universita...

English translation: This afternoon of Friday, July 13, the young students entrenched in the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua, UNAN-Managua, are being attacked by paramilitaries sent by the government of Daniel Ortega.

The young people have remained in the university campus to protest against the Ortega regime, which has imposed a dictatorship in Nicaragua and for the more than 350 deaths that its bloodthirsty government has left since April.

Very hard to watch.

Continued prayers tonight. I hope you can get out soon

Thank you, @thefarmerswife. Things have gotten much worse and we lost contact with my son in Managua for a while. I have heard from him this morning and the family is safe for the moment. We have to wait until a window of opportunity presents itself in order to leave.

I am so sorry Ceci, I hope you and your family are able to make it out of the country safely. ((Big Hugs))

Things are getting worse. We may not be able to leave...

I see that most of your tags are tags which are rarely searched for. Using more popular tags might increase the chance of peole finding your post.

What would you suggest? I use tags where most of my followers are from...perhaps when you have a better reputation and more followers I would take your advice...Did you even read the post?

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

It is up to us to get the word out.

Thanks for continuing to spread the word, I will share it everywhere Ceci. I wish you speed and safety getting out of the country.

Not sure when that will be. The events of today have put a damper on any plan of leaving immediately. I did a post about it.

Hi Ceci, was listening on @globocop's show last night.

I hope you are able to make it out as soon as it is safe to do so.

Until we leave we will find a way to get the information out. Because they are holding the people n the airport from yesterday we know it is not safe to leave by that route. Chris disappeared for a bit last night. No electricity in Managua, so no phone and no internet either. I did finally reach him in another way and they were at least safe. I have spoken to him this morning and they are okay. We will leave as soon as there is a window of opportunity.

If I can be of any help, just let me know.

I will and thank you for everything, @pennsif.

Oh, Ceci, this is a heart breaking update. I hope and pray you and your family can get to safety. x

We don't know if we can now. Things got much worse later in the day.

Hard to think how it could get much worse. xx

They did and we lost communications for a while last night. I have been in contact with my son and they are safe this morning. We too in the compound are safe.

I really worry about you all, hope you find somewhere safe and soon.

We hope that too! The sooner the better but it may take a while for a window of opportunity to open.

It can't happen quick enough. Your all in my thoughts.

You may not hear a lot about conditions here as it is getting very difficult to get the real news out. But as long as I post, you know that I am okay. Then when we resettle in a new place, I will tell the full story.

I hope you get settled quickly. I can still send you some sbds if you need it :)

Thank you, Karen. I will let you know...

Ok. Make sure you do. I want to help where i can 😊

I thank you for your support and your friendship, Karen. It means a great deal to me.

Oh my dear, I'm so sorry to hear that it only gets worse. I hope you and your family can leave Nicaragua safely, but I think it will be a sad occasion for you and your family. You have lived and loved in this country and now you are forced to leave it because it is not safe anymore. I think I am not the only one who prays for you and for a safe arrival somewhere else.

We will leave when the window of opportunity opens for us. It is not safe to leave right now. Indeed it will be a sad day because we leave everything. And by the time this is over we will have lost the homestead too.

Wish you and your family a safe move and hopefully a fast one too.
Thank you for updating us on your situation and what is happening in Nicaragua.
God Bless.

Thank you, @joalvarez! Please keep praying as the situation is not good and could last as much as a year.

Oh Ceci… love goes out to you and am praying for your protection and well being and that you and your loved ones will be led to safety very soon. Don't take any risks with communication. (U & R )

Hope you get out soon, and are safe. I am so sorry you have to endure this!

Thank you, @melinda010100. Just pray for us...

The government there has a handful of Russian Hind gunships.

I don't know if you have seen any. There appears to be some newer Chinese helicopter gunships in the supply stream to the 'Bolivarian Alliance'.

They will have night vision and thermal vision, so escaping under the cover of darkness will be more difficult if they start making regular passes. If i started seeing those it would be a indication of a much worse condition.

It appears the Bolivarians also have a lot of Russian heavy artillery stashed. It looks like they have been accumulating for something like this for years.

It looks like they are attempting to destabilize multiple countries to make a vast geological region under their control. Whatever your destination, i hope it is distant and safe from this.

Kindest regards, and best wishes.

Thank you, @joesal. we won't be posting any photos or much news from now on. We will be reporting on the weather, the garden, flowers and general stuff. If I don't post then the perfect storm has hit us. Thanks for your support! I appreciate it.

My goodness, I can not start to think how it must feel to actually leave for you and your family....but the truth is I am happy that you guys are going. its just not safe there...

Hopefully you can take as much of the animals as possible.. stay safe and please send signals when you are safe on the other side!

thinking about you guys!

There will be no room for the animals. We will be essentially starting over from scratch...

I dont know what to say ....that must be with so much pain. But it is a right decision, but heartache..

sending thoughts

Stay safe. I'll be praying for you.

Thank you. I appreciate it!

You wrote it is alright to resteem this post, so I did.
I think everybody on Steemit should know what is happening in Nicaragua, and what is happening to you and your family. You are a very very loyal Steemian and I think we all should be at your side in this troubled times. To have to leave your country because it is not safe anymore to stay is heartbreaking. I can only hope and pray that you and your family will be able to safely leave the country.
If possible, let us know how you are doing in the coming days

Thank you so much for your support and friendship, Clio. It means so very much to me. It is a very difficult situation. To think at my age I will have to start from scratch because we have lost everything is disheartening. But we will survive because the family is together and there is strength in numbers.

We're with you in prayers, @cecicastor, I also asked @wilx and the @christian-trail for prayers. We are all here for you and praying for your country. God bless you, your family and God bless Nicaragua. <3 <3 <3
Also upvoted and resteemed this, just a little help from me aside from prayers. We love you @cecicastor...keep the faith...hang in there..God is sovereign.

Thank you, @shirleynpenalosa, for your friendship and love. Your words are very comforting. I know the Creator is watching over us and thank you for all your prayers. It is what is keeping us safe, I am sure of it!

Amen to this and it brings tears to my eyes....take care please <3 <3 <3

We will do or best.

OMG, this is terrifying! Be safe, get out soon!

Doing what we can. The weather is not cooperating these days...if you catch the snow drift.

Thank you, my friend!
