On July 23, 1959, the Nicaraguan National Guard killed 4 students and injured over 60 others during a protest for democracy. Within 2 years, a revolution had begun that would last almost 30 years. This same fight has resurfaced time and time again, the country still searching for unity. Some years ago, a memorial to this day was erected beside the public basketball court and this is a great example of why public courts are so awesome. This one is such a cultural hotspot, often busy with people playing half court ball, maybe a few skateboarders refining their tricks, perhaps a soccer match and some fantastic imagery painted on its walls, including a large mural that clearly shows the fighting in the streets, a tribute to an important and tragically historic day.
