The film "Kill the Messenger" exposes the mainstream media's role in covering up the "contra-cocaine" scandal of the 1990s in which the Nicaragua Network and other solidarity groups joined with African Americans to push Congress not to brush the evidence of the CIA's drug involvement under the rug. Journalist Robert Parry, an expert on these issues, writes about how the New York Times finally is recognizing its immoral and deadly role.

Paul Baker’s Fall USA Tour -- November 5-25, 2014
This notice may be reproduced in whole or in part. Please credit the Nicaragua Network.
For almost forty years UK-born musician/organizer Paul Baker and his Nicaraguan wife Fátima Hernández have worked pro bono with the Chilean, Salvadoran and Nicaraguan peoples, as Paul puts it, "Surviving by skin of teeth and seat of pants. Quite a ride, but it's exciting (if tough on 'trousers'!), sharing life with people who drop into bed not knowing if there'll be food for tomorrow, yet always greeting you next day smiling, their children washed, pressed and ready for school. Fátima herself is a barrio girl, a guerrillera at 13 who fought the Somoza dictatorship to bring Nicaragua justice. She's worked on in barrio health and education ever since, and now primarily cares for severely burned children. It's wonderful to work with her/her compañer@s. Thanks to them/their FSLN government, after years of neo-liberal regimes killing land reform, destroying health and education, Nicaragua is the 'threat of a good example' once again."
