This delegation will examine the state of indigenous rights in Nicaragua at a time when the government has demarcated indigenous land and granted communal titles to indigenous groups but also at a time when illegal loggers and land grabbers have invaded those lands, deforesting pristine, internationally recognized nature reserves and threatened the tranquility of the indigenous territories.

TOUCHDOWN DANIEL ORTEGA AND THE FSLN
By: Adolfo Pastran Arancibia (translated by Nicaragua Network staff)
Nicaragua lives an undeniable political reality. You can question, accuse, contradict and be in opposition to the government of Sandinista Daniel Ortega, even at any cost, but the real and tangible facts in the economic and social fields cannot be hidden.

Former Nicaragua solidarity activist Bill De Blasio is the frontrunner in the NYC mayoral election. The right-wing is pulling out all the old lies against Nicaragua from Reagan’s dirty war against the Sandinistas in order to tar De Blasio. While the Nicaragua Network/Alliance for Global Justice has no position for or against any candidate for political office in New York or anywhere else, we do have an interest in countering the current slanders against Nicaragua.

September 11, 2013, is the 40th anniversary of the appalling Nixon/Kissinger/Pinochet coup in Chile, the first terrorist act on that fateful date. To honor Salvador Allende, Victor Jara and the thousands of other victims whose loved ones still cry out their names into the darkness (including those of the World Trade Center), here’s an article recognizing the vital and valiant role of Joan Jara, Victor’s wife, in the preservation and distribution of his music, and in the 40 long, long, years of the struggle for justice. She is one of the world’s great heroes. Please distribute the article as you can and wish. Thanks.
