July 13, the day that Ortega locked himself up in the Masaya Police to celebrate his “Withdrawal”

This Thursday, July 13, marks five years since the dictators Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo did not enter —in 2018— the indigenous neighborhood of Monimbó to carry out their activity in support of the “Tactical Withdrawal to Masaya.”

That date is relevant because that day the dictatorship also ordered an attack on the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (Unan-Managua).

That day would be the first time in the history of Nicaragua that the Ortega regime would hold the celebration in the police station of that city, gathered by dozens of police officers, paramilitaries and a small laptop of supporters who cheered the presidential couple.

Ortega and Murillo were received by the Commissioner and Deputy Director of the Police, Ramón Avellán. The leaders did not dare to enter the Plaza de Monimbó, in Masaya; one of the localities where its citizens suffered the most repression, in the context of the sociopolitical crisis.

The Nicaraguan dictator’s speech lasted less than 15 minutes so that, after his departure, the Police and men armed with war rifles attacked the indigenous community of Monimbó, which was defended by self-summoned people who carried mortar launchers, stones and contact bombs. The attack lasted more than 12 hours and left several injured.

“Triumph for the Masayas”

The exreo and political exile Yubrank Suazo said to Article 66 that the repudiation of the city of Masaya to the dictatorship is “an example of a definitive basta to Daniel Ortega.”

“It has been five years since the dictator and murderer Daniel Ortega has not entered our city. Well, we shouted it from the little square of Monimbó that there would be no more tactical withdrawal (…) and those words became prophetic because the entire city has turned its back on him, “he said.

For his part, the also released politician Christian Fajardo He stated that after five years of Daniel Ortega not celebrating the Withdrawal to Masaya, it is a triumph for Nicaraguans.

“Ortega could really enter, command the entire Army, militarize Masaya, but he will find the doors closed and I think the political cost will be worse when he sees desolate streets and they are not willing to bear that cost of repudiation,” he said.

A source, anonymous, and who witnessed that July 13 in Masaya, referred that “what Monimbó lived through was hard, because we did not expect so much hatred from the Ortega dictatorship, however we managed to fight and continue resisting.”

The last time that the dictator Daniel Ortega arrived on the outskirts of Masaya, was on July 6, 2019, at a soccer field, in front of the Mebasa tanks.
