Explore the history and current context of Nicaragua through the eyes of the Asociación de Trabajadores del Campo (ATC, Rural Workers’ Association), a mass organization that represents the people who feed Nicaragua: farmworkers and small farmers. We will exchange with peasants and workers organized by the ATC and other groups in the city and countryside, studying the role of unions, cooperatives, women, and youth in building Nicaragua’s popular economy and national sovereignty.
July 11-21: Our delegation will focus on learning and recovering the rich history of internationalist solidarity with Nicaragua. As a tangible act of our internationalism, we will collect testimonies so that we can return to our communities with resources for sharing the current state of revolutionary struggle in Nicaragua. We will also show our solidarity with the ongoing fight to resist imperialism following 2018's failed coup attempt by joining with thousands of Nicaraguans in Managua to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution on July 19.
Delegation organizers: ATC and Friends of ATC (Asociación de Trabajadores del Campo), La Via Campesina Nicaragua, Alliance for Global Justice, Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign.
