Our protection during a protest

In April 2018, protests erupted in Nicaragua, the result of fierce resistance to changes the government made to the social security system that reduced social security payments and increased taxes. 

The protests started in the capital, Managua, but little by little they spread to the neighboring cities, among them a city close to the area where I live. 

Very quickly the protests escalated to dangerous and almost uncontrollable levels, because they were met by counterattacks from the police and anti-riot forces. One of my sons lives very close to the area where the worst shooting took place.
