Join AfGJ Nicaragua-Honduras Delegation!

Unique Chance to Compare & Contrast Honduras/Nicaragua

Alliance for Global Justice Bi-National Delegation

July 22-Aug. 1, 2015

Nicaragua’s canal – More than one way of being right
February 23, 2015

On our recent visit to Nicaragua we organised a series of meetings to try to gauge opinion and gather information about the Interoceanic Canal. We also brought up the issue with many we met, both formally and informally, to try to get as broad a picture as possible.  The canal has received a lot of attention in the international press.
