Amenazas a Defensores de Derechos Humanos

Lottie Cunningham no calla. La han amenazado de muerte, pero sigue denunciando la inacción del gobierno del comandante Daniel Ortega ante la invasión de tierras indígenas por parte de colonos en el Caribe de Nicaragua. Una situación que ha dejado más de 32 indígenas asesinados desde septiembre de 2015. A través de su cuenta de Facebook, la directora del Centro Por la Justicia y Derechos Humanos de la Costa Atlántica (Cejudhcan) recibió las amenazas. Si seguía denunciando ante los medios de comunicación la invasión, sería asesinada, le dijeron. “Si nos pasa algo vamos a responsabilizar al Estado de Nicaragua, porque tiene que asumir esa obligación de proteger y defender a los defensores de derechos humanos”, dijo Cunningham en una entrevista transmitida en el programa Esta Noche.
