Petition by Free Amaya Coppens


Sign now with a click On September 10th, Amaya Eva Coppens Zamora, was kidnapped and illegally arrested by paramilitary forces in León, Nicaragua. Together with other student activists, she is now being detained as a political prisoner.

Amaya (24) is a citizen of Nicaragua and Belgium, and studies medicine in León. She is a local leader for the 19th of April movement, and has been participating in demonstrations against the rule of dictator/President Daniel Ortega. Amaya, who is also a United World College alumni, is a fierce fighter for justice and freedom. Her friends and family have received information that she is being held at El Chipote Jail, a prison were the UN has uncovered several cases of Human Rights Violations, including torture.

We ask for the immediate release of Amaya and her peers. Signing this petition, and sharing it widely, will contribute to keeping the pressure on the government, and increase the likelihood of the situation being quickly resolved.
