HAVANA TIMES – Young people continue marching in the streets a month after the first protests that erupted over the huge wildfire in the Indio Maiz biological reserve. Their “weapons” are the placards demanding justice, the strumming of guitars for an end to violence and the song lyrics demanding freedom.
On May 10, the National Coalition of Nicaraguan University Students organized a cultural rally for the unity of the student movement. Different emerging artists displayed their talent in the activity that was held as part of the protests for the situation in Nicaragua.
The University Coalition is a group that brings together the different student movements that have formed as a result of the April demonstrations. “We’ve organized this event in response to the people’s clamor for our unity. We’re here from different universities. The people wanted our unity: here it is,” affirmed Lesther Aleman, member of the Nicaraguan University Alliance. Aleman affirmed that over the next several days they’ll organize more cultural acts like this one.
