In the spring of 2018, a series of student protests in Nicaragua quickly snowballed into a months-long nationwide rebellion.
In the second of our two-part series we return with guests Mark, Miranda and Tanya to discuss the April 2018 rebellion in Nicaragua. In this episode we go into more depth on the movement itself and respond to various narratives on the left on Sandinista leader and Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega.
Mark is from the primarily Indigenous and Black Atlantic/Caribbean coast region of Nicaragua and has deep family ties to the Sandinista movement. Miranda lives back and forth between the US and Nicaragua and was a student in Managua during the rebellion and authored several pieces about his direct participation. Tanya is a Los Angeles based artist, photographer, and member of Black Rose/Rosa Negra, who comes from a Sandinista family.
