I want to thank John for coming on the program to speak about his experience having lived in Nicaragua for the last 20 or so years, meeting his lovely partner there, doing solidarity work with folks in Nicaragua, in the UK, the US Empire, and around the world. John is also an author and journalist who has written and spoken about his experiences, especially during the US-backed attempted coups in 2018, and the revolutions' gains since they were reelected to office in 2007. We speak briefly about the history of Nicaragua since the 90's, and hope to have more episodes to cover in depth some more of the history of this revolutionary people and nation!
All power to the Sandinista Revolution, and the Nicaraguan People!
