Hundreds of people in Costa Rica have taken section in a march in San Jose in team spirit with Nicaraguan migrants who have arrived there.

Thousands of Nicaraguans have fled their u . s . to flee the political difficulty there.

The march was known as after an anti-migrant demonstration a week in the past led to clashes and plenty of arrests.

That demonstration used to be condemned by means of the government, the non-public sector and several human rights organisations.

Many of those participating in Saturday’s march carried banners condemning Nicaragua’s President Daniel Ortega.

They demanded justice for loads of individuals killed in four months of anti-govt protests there.

Protesters blame the security forces and paramilitary teams unswerving to the Nicaraguan govt for the violence whilst the authorities have labelled the protesters as “terrorists”.

President Ortega has rejected calls to step right down to defuse the clashes.

The United Nation’s refugee agency (UNHCR) stated recently that a regular of 2 HUNDRED Nicaraguans an afternoon had been making use of for asylum in neighbouring Costa Rica.

More than 20,000 Nicaraguans have thus far asked refugee standing in Costa Rica.
