“A lie told once remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”- Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, 1933-1945

President Ortega is a dictator!  President Ortega is a dictator!  President Ortega is a dictator!  Etc., Etc., Etc!!  Say it over and over, and it becomes accepted truth with absolutely no evidence whatsoever. Welcome to the post-truth world – A Goebbels’ world.

In 1979, the The Sandinista National Liberation Front (Spanish: Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, FSLN) triumphed over the more than four decades of US-supported Somoza dictatorship.  Thus ended the “stable” playground for the wealthy, right-wing Nicaraguan families and their affluent US investor friends, preserved at the expense of the vast majority of the Nicaraguan people. To this day the US has never forgiven the social-minded Sandinistas (“Sandinismo”) for having forced the end of the Somoza era. Many of the wealthy opposition now live in Miami, Florida.

Ten years of Reagan’s brutal terrorist war against the Sandinista government came to an end in 1990 after more than 50,000 casualties.  The FSLN lost the 1990 elections in which the US financed with nearly $50 million dollars a “Liberal” Party candidate, Violeta Chamorro, as an alternative to the FSLN[1].

During run-up to the 1990 Nicaragua elections, the Bush administration stated its intention of “keeping the Sandinistas guessing” through secret intelligence operations (New York Times, June 11, 1989) aimed at influencing the election. New monies for the opposition parties were justified in order to “level the playing field” to boost the U.S.-created opposition forces’ chance of ousting Sandinista President Daniel Ortega (Miami Herald, Oct. 18, 1989).

President Bush had promised in November 1989 that the devastating trade embargo and terrorist war against Nicaragua would be immediately lifted if the U.S.-backed presidential candidate, Violeta Chamorro, was elected by a majority of the Nicaraguan people (Washington Post, Nov. 9, 1989). Understandably, the exhausted Nicaraguans and the FSLN lost the election, but did regain power through democratic elections again in 2007 after 16 years of repressive Liberal rule.

Nicaragua zag af van lockdowns en mondkapjes, en verpletterde het coronavirus

Nicaragua ging niet in lockdown en maakte mondkapjes niet verplicht. Toch verpletterde het land het coronavirus. In Europa worden ondertussen nieuwe lockdowns ingesteld, wat gepaard gaat met felle protesten. Waarom leren we niets van landen waar geen lockdowns zijn afgekondigd en die het toch uitzonderlijk goed hebben gedaan?

Daniel Ortega, de president van Nicaragua, zei dat inwoners van zijn land zelf mochten kiezen. Wil je een mondkapje dragen? Prima. Wil je geen mondkapje dragen? Ook prima. Hetzelfde gold voor bedrijven. Wil je openblijven? Geen probleem.

Dag in dag uit konden we in de media lezen dat dergelijk beleid zeer schadelijk zou zijn. Ortega werd hard aangevallen. Sommige kranten schreven zelfs dat hij mensenrechten schond door geen lockdowns in te stellen.

Politiegeweld

In het medische tijdschrift The Lancet verscheen een artikel waarin de corona-aanpak in Nicaragua werd vergeleken met die in buurlanden El Salvador en Honduras, waar wel strenge maatregelen van kracht waren.

Nayib Bukele, de president van El Salvador, zei dat mensen in zelfisolatie moesten gaan. De lockdown in dat land werd gehandhaafd door bendes met knuppels, schreef de Los Angeles Times. In Honduras leidde de avondklok tot veel politiegeweld: meer dan 1000 mensen werden gearresteerd en bijna 900 auto’s in beslag genomen.

Horen we niets over

Desondanks lag het aantal besmettingen in beide landen veel hoger dan in Nicaragua. Ook de coronasterfte lag in Honduras en El Salvador veel hoger.

Hier horen we niets over, want dit is niet de uitkomst waar de media en farmaceutische bedrijven op hadden gehoopt, stelt onderzoeksjournalist Ben Swann. “Uit de data blijkt dat mondkapjes en lockdowns niet beschermen tegen de verspreiding van corona. Daarnaast blijkt dat landen die geen strenge maatregelen afkondigden er beter vanaf kwamen dan landen die dat wel deden.”

US Intervention in Nicaragua. Washington Stated Intent to “Destroy Public Order” and Engage in “Violent Actions”: Brian Willson – Global Research

01-09-20 09:35:00,

33rd Anniversary of Brian’s Surviving the US Train Assault in California, September 1, 2020 in front of the US embassy, Managua, Nicaragua

Buenos dias.  I am here today in front of the US Embassy in Managua to protest US intervention in Nicaragua and also to publicly deliver a letter in which I and others request a meeting with Ambassador Sullivan to denounce US intervention in Nicaragua.

I first came to Nicaragua in 1986 to study Spanish and to learn about the Nicaragua’s Revolution.

I came back three more times in 1986 and 1987 to document the criminal conduct of President Reagan’s so-called terrorist “Freedom Fighters”, trained, armed and funded by the US people through their Congress and President. Upon doing research, several of us discovered that most of the weapons – mortars, assault rifles, pistols, land mines, grenades, rockets, small arms ammunition, etc. – coming to El Salvador and Nicaragua, originated from the Concord, California Naval Weapons Station (CNWS). We acquired copies of the shipment orders.

In addition, we gained more information after young Nicaraguan soldiers shot down on October 5, 1986, a US CIA C-123 weapons supply plane with a surface-to-air missile (SAM), twenty miles from the Costa Rican border north of San Carlos, Nicaragua. One of the four crew members, mercenary Eugene Hasenfus from Wisconsin, USA, parachuted to safety before being captured. The three other crew members were killed in the crash. It was Hasenfus’ tenth air supply drop of weapons to awaiting Contra terrorists.  The plane was carrying thirteen thousand pounds of military supplies, including sixty AK-47s, fifty thousand rounds of ammunition, grenades and their launchers, jungle boots, and water packets originating from Brooklyn, New York.  I and two other US military veterans were able to interview Hasenfus for several hours in his Tipitapa prison cell gathering many additional details of the US arms shipments.

The US continued to relentlessly fund the criminal terrorist war against the Nicaraguan people despite it being in violation of both international and US Constitutional law, and a ruling of the World Court. Thousands of people were murdered and maimed. The US Congress and President have never been held to account for these vicious crimes, enjoying virtual immunity. Thus, some of us US citizens chose to act in direct efforts to stop the US murder policy being conducted in all of our names as US citizens.

Nicaragua and COVID-19 – Western Media’s Best Kept Secret – Global Research

07-04-20 07:44:00,

One of the best hidden secrets amidst the cacophony of panic and media terrorism caused by the current COVID-2019 pandemic has been how successfully Nicaragua, a small, impoverished country in one of the most climate change-prone regions on the planet, has been tackling the arrival of the new coronavirus.

With 6.5 million inhabitants, Nicaragua had as of April 5th only 6 cases of COVID-19, all imported, of which 3 were active, 2 were recovered and one, ill with AIDS, had died. At the same time, the authorities kept under close surveillance some 10 people who, despite having tested negative, continue to be monitored as a precaution.

By comparison, in the Central American region, at that same date there were 4,598 confirmed cases of COVID-19 of which 4,360 were active, 167 dead and 71 recovered. In Central America, only Belize, with less than 400,000 inhabitants, has fewer confirmed cases than Nicaragua, with 5, all active.

In terms of cases per million inhabitants, Nicaragua has the lowest number of cases in the entire region, with 0.93 cases. It is followed by Guatemala, with 4.22 cases; El Salvador, with 9.56 cases; Belize, with 12.24 cases; Honduras, with 32.54 cases; Costa Rica, with 89.76 cases; and Panama, with 471.22 cases per million.

Note that the two countries with which Nicaragua has extensive and porous borders (Honduras to the north and Costa Rica to the south) have much higher levels of infection.

Likewise, in two countries characterized by draconian confinement and curfew measures to address the pandemic (El Salvador and Honduras), infection rates per million inhabitants are also much higher than in Nicaragua.

Sectors linked to the violent, failed 2018 opposition coup attempt in Nicaragua claim that the government figures are false and that it is not really doing anything to combat the pandemic. They say that there are so few confirmed cases because massive testing of COVID-19 has not been applied to the population.

These arguments are only viable for consumption abroad and for certain groups well out of touch with domestic opinion in the country, effectively living an illusion, since for any normal person living in Nicaragua the situation is obviously not like that.

Clearly, no health center in Nicaragua is overwhelmed with people with respiratory symptoms.

Plantagenarbeiter aus Nicaragua klagen gegen Pestizidhersteller

Das Pestizid Nemagon machte unfruchtbar und Arbeiter krank. Hier Opfer von Nicaragua. © speroforum

Christa Dettwiler / 20. Okt 2019 –

Trotz gültigen Urteilen erhalten unfruchtbar gewordene Bananen-Arbeiter kein Geld. Jetzt klagen sie in Frankreich.

Der Fall zieht sich schon seit Jahrzehnten hin. Auf zentralamerikanischen Bananen-Plantagen wurden Pestizide eingesetzt, die Tausende von Arbeitern unfruchtbar machten. Dibromochloropropan (DBCP) ist ein Inhaltsstoff des Pestizids „Nemagon“. 1977 wurde es in den USA verboten, als sich herausstellte, dass es in Tausenden von Arbeitern Unfruchtbarkeit bewirkte, welche diesem Pestizid in US-Plantagen von Dow Chemical, Shell Oil und Occidental Chemical (heute OxyChem) ausgesetzt waren. Auf Bananen- und Ananasplantagen in Ländern mit tieferen Umweltstandards verwendeten US-Lebensmittelkonzerne „Nemagon“ jedoch bis in die 80er Jahre.

Im letzten Jahrzehnt verurteilten nicaraguanische Gerichte Dow, Shell und Occidental dazu, Hunderten von Opfern 805 Millionen US-Dollar Schadenersatz zu zahlen. Die Unternehmen weigerten sich mit dem Argument, die Gerichte seien nicht zuständig und hätten ihnen eine faire Verhandlung verweigert.

Jetzt haben 1’245 betroffene Arbeiter ihre Klage nach Europa getragen, wo die Unternehmen etliche Vermögenswerte besitzen. Kürzlich fror ein französisches Gericht bis zur Gerichtsverhandlung im Januar in Paris Aktien von Dow France im Wert von 99 Millionen Euro provisorisch ein.

Doch erst muss ein französischer Richter entscheiden, ob Gerichtsurteile aus anderen Ländern, in diesem Fall Nicaragua, überhaupt in Frankreich und in der EU vollstreckt werden können. Sollte das der Fall sein, wollen die Kläger einen Teil der 805 Millionen US-Dollar des nicaraguanischen Urteils gegen Dow einfordern. Sie bemühen sich auch darum, Vermögenswerte von Dow, Shell und Occidental in anderen europäischen Ländern einzufrieren und zu verkaufen. Sie berufen sich auf die EU-Regel, die vorsieht, dass ein Gerichtsurteil eines EU-Landes in allen 28 Mitgliedsländern vollstreckt werden kann.

Der französische Anwalt Francois-Henri Briard ist Teil des internationalen Teams, das die Arbeiter und ihre Familien vertritt. Es sei in einer globalisierten Welt für multinationale Firmen einfach, ihre Vermögenswerte zu verstecken, sagte er gegenüber der New York Times: „Genau das haben die US-Unternehmen in Nicaragua getan: Sie haben Menschen vergiftet, wurden dafür von den Gerichten verurteilt und verschwanden, ohne zu bezahlen.“ In einer solchen Welt sollten auch die Opfer Grenzen überschreiten dürfen, um zu ihrem Recht zu kommen.

Dow und Shell blockierten – zusammen mit Dole Fruit,
