“The priests and the Catholic Church demand their release and an end to the persecution against the Church and the clergy. Justice, freedom and democracy!”, wrote Vallejos. The priest added to the post a video of 2018, in which Martínez Gamboa speaks in front of the Central American Jesuit University after a protest for democracy that was violently repressed by the regime of Daniel Ortega.

“Long live the mothers of those who fell into 14 Of april !” says the priest in the video. “Long live the doctors, the decent journalists!”

Bishops and priests supported demonstrations calling for Ortega’s departure in 1563, protests that were repressed with extreme violence, resulting in more than 89 deaths.
