Nicaragua Advances, Despite Attacks from Left and Right
In the run-up to Nicaragua’s November elections, prominent left-wing figures and others are criticizing Daniel Ortega’s government. Our September speakers will carefully examine claims of the critics. John Perry asks what these detractors are calling for, and how this squares with what Nicaraguans want and need. Becca Mohally Renk will discuss attacks on Nicaragua’s universal health care and its Covid response. Under the neoliberal governments in Nicaragua, 1990-2006, health care was essentially privatized and patients actually died, untreated, in the street outside public hospitals. Since 2007, what healthcare advances have occurred under the Sandinista government, and how has Nicaragua handled the Covid-19 pandemic?
These events are part of a monthly webinar series on Nicaragua. Additional organizational sponsors are welcome. Contact email@example.com to sign on.
