Nicaraguan general strike has mixed impact

Friday, May 24, 2019


A general strike called by Nicaragua’s opposition to demand the release of political prisoners was having mixed effects yesterday.

Small businesses, some supermarkets and private schools were closed in the capital on Thursday. But pharmacies and gas stations were open. Traffic was lighter than usual, with many private vehicles off the roads, but buses and taxis were circulating as usual, the Associated Press reports.
