Rally for Nicaragua's Ortega shows he still has lots of support
Wednesday, May 2, 2018
Embattled Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, battered by two weeks of street protests so violent many of his political enemies are openly saying he's lost control of his government, offered an impressive show of strength in rebuttal Monday, leading tens of thousands of supporters in a pledge to "say yes to peace!" at a huge street rally.
Ortega's supporters mounted the rally in response to a chain of Saturday demonstrations across the country demanding his resignation — the biggest of them, with a crowd as big as 150,000 by some estimates.
