3. US Propaganda Campaign against Nicaragua’s Expulsion of Violent pro-US agents:

Popular Resistance (Jill Clark-Gollup): Reconciliation Does Not Mean Forgetting In NicaraguaThe 222 people recently released to the US who were convicted of treason in Nicaragua for savage acts of violence against their people. They had benefited from an amnesty in 2019, but violated its terms by participating in a new coup plot in 2020 and 2021. In releasing the 222 over to the US, the Nicaraguan authorities effectively pardoned them a second time in order to bring further reconciliation to society. But for the sake of historical memory and non-repetition, it is important to remember their crimes.

Francisco Dominguez (short video): Nicaragua’s prisoners committed very serious crimes

FAIR (John Perry): Nicaragua’s ‘Political Prisoners’ Would Be Criminals by US Standards The Nicaraguan government deported to the US 222 people who were in prison, and moved to strip them of their citizenship. The prisoners had been convicted of various crimes, including terrorism, conspiracy to overthrow the democratically elected government, requesting the United States to intervene in Nicaragua, economic damage and threatening the country’s stability, most relating to the violent coup attempt in 2018 and its aftermath.

NicaNotes: Why 222 Nicaraguan Criminals Were Deported and Why They and Others Lost Their Citizenship These 222 received US monies directly or indirectly, through nonprofits or businesses, to manage US aggressions against the State of Nicaragua. Many of them conspired with the US embassy in Managua. Most  of them were involved in the 2018 US-directed coup attempt that left 253 people dead, hundreds of Sandinistas tortured and traumatized, and billions of dollars of damage to the economy. They were planning further actions in the run-up to Nicaragua’s 2021 elections when they were arrested. 

4. Short Pieces on US anti-Nicaragua Propaganda

Lee Camp on Propaganda against Nicaragua

Ben Norton: Nicaragua is #1 Country Where Citizens Feel at Peace, Gallup Poll Shows A poll by mainstream firm Gallup found that Nicaragua is the No. 1 country in the world where citizens feel at peace. Nine of the top 14 countries are in Latin America. But the US constantly attacks the Sandinista government and imposes sanctions on it.

5. United Nations Human Rights Council’s Recent Attack on Nicaragua

Kawsachun News: These countries slammed UNHRC for its attack on Nicaragua DPRK, Venezuela, Belarus, Cuba, Iran, Russia, Eritrea, Syria, and China voiced opposition to the politicized use of the UN Human Rights Council and the weaponization of human rights against Nicaragua, following the release of a hostile UN expert report.The 300-page report is based on false accounts and allegations and is demonstrably and egregiously selective in its presentation of evidence since the group systematically excluded a large quantity of local sources, including major Nicaraguan news channels which published highly relevant material and reports on specific incidents during the period in question (2018).
