Nicaragua and the Inter-Oceanic Canal
Prepared for the Nicaragua Network / Alliance for Global Justice in July 2015 by Katherine Hoyt
A waterway across Nicaragua has been a dream that the country has been unable to let go of:
*Trade networks of Nicaragua’s indigenous inhabitants used Lake Cocibolca (Lake Nicaragua) and the San Juan River to cross the continent before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in 1524.

Unique Chance to Compare & Contrast Honduras/Nicaragua
Alliance for Global Justice Bi-National Delegation
July 22-Aug. 1, 2015
Honduras and Nicaragua are neighbors and among the most impoverished countries in Latin America. They share the same climate and much of the same history from colonial times to independence. One country had a revolution in 1979 which today is being further developed, particularly through ALBA, the cooperative trade alliance. The other country had no revolution but its membership in ALBA was one factor in a US-backed military coup in 2009. The negative effects of that coup are evident.

The Wales Nicaragua Solidarity Committee, Wales Nicaragua Cymru, has posted a balanced report on the proposed Nicaraguan interoceanic shipping canal on their web page. The report is based on their recent trip to Nicaragua.
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. Most of this has been unrelentingly negative.
