News Director, 100% Noticias - Nicaragua

Lucía Pineda

The state of press freedom in Nicaragua is dire. Lucía was arrested in December 2018 for, “inciting hate and violence,” after her news outlet – 100% Noticias – reported on abuses by government forces. She was released in June 2019, but suffers from medical issues resulting from the detainment. Today she notes that, “everything I’ve done has been for the love of my country.”
