Sanctions are a weapon of economic war. In every country, the poorest and most vulnerable in society suffer the worst impact of sanctions. Like military interventions, they are a crime against humanity used to topple popular governments and movements.

Despite over 1 million reported cases and over 80,000 deaths from COVID-19 and unemployment rising to over 30 million, the United States continues its obsession with Nicaragua and its push for regime change there. At a time when Nicaragua has been taking careful steps to deal with the virus and protect the health and livelihood of its population, the Trump administration has joined with the right-wing opposition it sponsors in using the opportunity to try to destabilise the Sandinista government and spread fear among Nicaraguan people.

US and EU sanctions against Nicaragua threaten to put in jeopardy the lives of the most vulnerable, women, children, the elderly, the chronically ill, and the poorest. They must be immediately and unconditionally suspended.
