Trade Unions and Revolution in Nicaragua
Published by the Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign in 1984, 30 pages. A5 size pamphlet (S5685)
This pamphlet provides a brief introduction to the situation in Nicaragua in the early 1980's, with particular emphasis on the role of Trade Unions. In 1979 the fascist dictatorship of Somoza was overthrown in a popular revolution which brought the Sandinista's to power, and they became a programme of socialist reforms that soon brought opposition from the Reagan Administration in the USA. They began funding and supplying a counter revolutionary paramilitary force - the Contra's, who started a violent, bloody and brutal war against the people of Nicaragua, in an attempt to destablisie and eventually bring down the left wing government of the country.
From the rear side cover: The government, trade unions and people of Nicaragua are constantly demonstrating and appealing to regan to halt his war against them. Needless to say those appeals are falling on deaf ears. Instead, his buccaneering antics in support of Somoza's butchers are gathering momentum
Condition of the pamphlet is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
