                                                          People to People Solidarity                                                                  San Juan de Limay, Nicaragua – Baltimore MD

A group of nine US citizens visited Nicaragua from January 4 to the 15th, 2020. During our 12 day stay, we visited hospitals, clinics, farms, and a major prison. We met with doctors and medical staff, unions, cooperatives, a military veterans’ group, environmental groups, student groups, peasant women organizations and government officials. 

We wanted to find out from the Nicaraguan people what is really going on in their country. Like us, you may be wondering:

  • Why did the US government impose sanctions against Nicaragua called the Nica Act?
  • Why does the US Department of State warn on its website against travel to Nicaragua?
  • Who was responsible for the violence in Nicaragua from April to July 2018?
