Global Security News from Michael_Novakhov (27 sites): 1. Russia from Michael_Novakhov (115 sites): Voice of America: Good Friday Processions Become Protests in Nicaragua

Good Friday religious processions in Nicaragua’s capital took on a political tone as people seized an opportunity to renew protests against the government of President Daniel Ortega.

As hundreds of faithful walked in a traditional Stations of the Cross procession to the city’s cathedral, dozens of protesters shouted for justice and carried wooden crosses bearing the names of those who died during the past year of protests. They waved the blue-and-white Nicaraguan flag, which has become a symbol of the opposition.

When the protest continued outside the cathedral, riot police moved in to disperse them with deafening sound grenade-type devices and tear gas. Some young protesters threw rocks and sought shelter among the faithful inside the cathedral’s gates. Police surrounded the site.

Vatican mediating

Jose Pallais, a member of the opposition Civic Alliance who has participated in a dialogue with the government, said the Vatican’s ambassador Waldemar Sommertag was mediating between authorities and the opposition to win the safe passage of the protesters out of the cathedral.

Some protesters later left the cathedral, but late in the afternoon police were still outside the site and about 100 protesters remained inside, afraid to come out, Pallais said.

Pallais said he had heard of two injuries, including a young woman injured by a tear gas canister.

The National Police said in a statement they knew of no injuries and had arrested no one. They said masked protesters armed with rocks, homemade mortars and some with guns infiltrated the procession and then hid on the grounds of the cathedral.

​Police thwart earlier protests

On Wednesday, an overwhelming police presence scuttled a scheduled opposition march to mark the anniversary of the protests. Public demonstrations have been effectively banned in Nicaragua since last year.

Friday was the anniversary of the first three deaths after the government and armed supporters moved to quash the protests last year.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights says at least 325 people have died in the protests and government crackdown. Protests began in response to social security cuts and expanded to calls for Ortega’s ouster.

Ortega has maintained that last year’s protests were an attempted coup orchestrated by forces outside the country. International observers have found no evidence of a plot to overthrow of the one-time revolutionary who led the ouster of Anastasio Somoza in 1979.

More US sanctions

This week U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton announced additional sanctions against Nicaragua, European politicians called on the European Union to impose its own and Canada confirmed that it had cut nearly $20 million in direct aid to Ortega’s government.

James K. Hill, Canada’s ambassador to Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Honduras told the AP this week that repression by Nicaraguan authorities had led to the suspension of the financial support.

“Canada is concerned by the human rights situation and considers the repressive actions of the government unacceptable,” Hill said in a written response to the AP.

The government typically uses such direct foreign assistance to support its general budget. Canada suspended the assistance in August, but the government only confirmed it following a news report this week.

Hill said the aid carries conditions and wouldn’t be renewed until “there is satisfactory evidence of improvement with respect to the state of human rights in Nicaragua, which would be reported by independent sources.”

Canada continues to provide development assistance in Nicaragua — averaging about $15 million annually — through international and non-governmental organizations.

Just this week, former Massachusetts Governor William Weld threw his hat in the ring to challenge Donald Trump for the 2020 Republican nomination for president, while calling out Trump’s Attorney General William Barr for pandering to the pro-Trump conspiracy theorists. During his testimony before the Senate Appropriations subcommittee last week, Barr stated, “I think spying did occur. But the question is whether it was adequately predicated, and I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.”


While most sane people quickly called out Barr for his inappropriate use of debunked conspiracy theories, Barr’s antics were sure to make Trump happy. Bill Weld made the case that the investigation into Trump’s campaign, given the vast evidence of wrongdoing, was appropriate. Weld said that “When an agency opens an investigation, it may be a lot of things, it may be bad news for the target. But it’s not spying. It’s just opening an investigation.”



Despite Weld being a relatively little known political figure on the national stage, his decision to primary Trump is rather substantial. Given the history of incumbent presidents being primaried during their reelection campaign, this does not bode well for Trump. Going back to just after Richard Nixon resigned the presidency, no incumbent president has ever won reelection following a legitimate primary challenge.



When Gerald Ford took over after Nixon’s resignation, he was later primaried by Ronald Reagan. While Ford would succeed in winning the Republican nomination, he would go on to lose in the general election to Jimmy Carter. Just four years later, Ted Kennedy attempted to win the Democratic nomination in a challenge to Carter. Just like the previous election, the sitting president won the primary but lost the presidential election. The same can be said about the 1992 election when George H.W. Bush won the primary against Pat Buchanan but lost to Bill Clinton.


While an incumbent president has not faced a real primary challenge in decades, the history appears to be straightforward. It would seem that presidents are only challenged by their own party when there are reasons to doubt their ability to be reelected. Weld’s decision to go up against Trump for the 2020 Republican nomination only benefits the Democratic candidates going into the most important presidential election of our lifetime.

There is a still a concern that Britain may leave the European Union without a deal to smooth the way, the bloc’s chief executive said Saturday, urging Britain to take advantage of a six-month delay to work out the details of its departure. 

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker made the comments in an interview with German newspaper FUNKE Mediengruppe, a week after EU leaders gave Britain six months more to exit the EU. 

“Nobody knows how Brexit will end. This is creating great uncertainty. There is still a fear that there will be a hard Brexit without any withdrawal treaty arrangements,” Juncker said, citing the long-term negative impact on Europe’s economy. 

‘Best solution’

Even though the extension to Oct. 31 offers little clarity on when, how or even whether Brexit will happen, Britain should use the time wisely, he said. 

“I hope that the British will make use of this time and not waste it again. We cannot keep on putting off the withdrawal date indefinitely. The best solution would be for the British to adopt the Withdrawal Agreement during the extra time that has been agreed,” Juncker said. 

The withdrawal deal negotiated by Prime Minister Theresa May with the EU has been rejected three times by the British Parliament. 

Juncker, who is scheduled to meet U.S. President Donald Trump at the G-20 meeting in Osaka in June, predicted a “lively discussion” ahead. 

“The last discussion lasted six hours and it is good that you were not there,” Juncker said, referring to raised voices at his last talks with Trump. 

Trade relations between the United States and the EU have soured in recent months after Washington hit the bloc with tariffs and threatened more. Asked about possible new tariffs ahead of the G-20 meeting, Juncker counseled patience. 

Call for more spending

He called on Germany and other countries to spend more to boost growth in the bloc, which is expected to see a slowing economy, a day after German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz ruled out taking on new debt to stimulate his country’s anemic growth. 

“However, Germany should use its financial leeway to further reduce public debt and boost investment. This also includes eliminating bureaucratic hurdles,” Juncker said. 

He also cautioned there was a risk of foreign manipulation around next month’s European Parliament elections, where euroskeptic groups are expected to gain ground. 

With Britain expected to take part, the proportion of the assembly’s seats held by euroskeptics is seen rising to 14.3 percent from around 10 percent currently, according to the compilation of national polls commissioned by the European Parliament. 

“I can see an attempt to rig the European Parliament elections. This comes from several quarters, and not only from outside the EU. States within the EU are also seeking to direct the will of voters in a particular direction with fake news,” Juncker said, adding that the commission was ready to deal with 

the issue.
