Peace vigils for Nicaragua continue in Costa Rica

April 30, 2018

Nicaraguan residents of Costa Rica, Costa Ricans of Nicaraguan descent, and others concerned about recent events in Managua and beyond have continued to show their support through peace vigils held in downtown San José.

This weekend’s gathering took place Saturday at the Plaza de la Democracia.

Last week, The Tico Times and community news organization Vecinos Activos explored the western San José neighborhood of La Carpio, Central America’s largest binational community, to speak to residents about their take on the events in Nicaragua. Read the piece here.
