Ortega = Sinister St. Nick?... 1982
Just something interesting I ran across.
"CPDH acusa a Fiscalía de encubrir a Ortega" http://www.laprensa.com.ni/archivo/2006/julio/14/noticias/ultimahora/130...
The NGO CPDH, Commission for Civil Rights, accused the Public Ministry for covering up "genocides and crimes against humanity supposedly committed by ex president Daniel Ortega and 15 others against miskito natives during the 1980."
The article goes on to describe the "red Christmas" of 1982, in which 8,500 indigenous tribesmen (and women) were forced out of their communities by the Río Coco.. During this time, the article claims, "a total of 64 people were murdered, 13 were tortured, and 15 were missing in Miskito comunities located in the country's Northern Caribbean coast."
Maybe some of the members living in that region of the country can give some insight.
** Maybe they needed some more red pigment for their flag? ** Let's hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me.
Just a thought..
