Hundreds of thousands of anti-government protesters took to the streets on Wednesday in Managua
Protesters are pressuring President Daniel Ortega to resign over previous use of deadly force by the government
At least three protesters were killed in the Wednesday demonstrations
Over 80 people have been killed and 900 wounded by police and pro-government factions since protests began on April 18
Why It Matters: With the government crackdown and body count piling up, it is unlikely that protests will slow down–in fact they may pick up. Destabilization of Nicaragua is becoming a growing concern and it is a situation worth monitoring.
