This week President Danny Ortega hosted a public forum to “hear” the grievances of private, civic and student groups in Nicaragua. Though, what actually transpired can hardly be mistaken for “civil dialogue.”

“The dialogue is to demand justice for the victims and that Daniel Ortega leave power because he no longer has the capacity to run this country,” Azalea Solis, a representative of the civic groups in the dialogue, told local media.
