Bianca Jagger leads Nicaragua canal protest

Wednesday, August 16, 2017


Celebrity rights activist Bianca Jagger lent star power on Tuesday to a protest against the building of a major canal in her native Nicaragua.

The 72-year-old is a former actress and ex-wife of Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger. She joined dozens of demonstrators who marched in La Fonseca, a remote village on a dirt track, where her visit caused a commotion. They say La Fonseca and other places along the proposed canal route will be destroyed by the project.
