This webinar, hosted by the Alliance for Global Justice, took place on 20 June. It is highly recommended for providing a true perspective on current events in Nicaragua as opposed to the misinformation and bias being put out daily by corporate media such as the Guardian, Daily Mail, Washington Post, New York Times and AP News. It also provides a response to the relentless attacks against Nicaragua by the US, Organisation of American States (which was responsible for facilitating the 2019 coup in Bolivia) and Nicaragua's right wing opposition. It also gives an overview of the social and economic advances that have taken place in Nicaragua since the election of Daniel Ortega and the FSLN in 2006.
