Farmers protest plans for Nicaragua canal

Friday, October 24, 2014

Small-scale farmers from communities in Nicaragua’s southern Caribbean zone protested Tuesday against planed land expropriations orchestrated by the government of Daniel Ortega and the Chinese company HKND in order to build a massive interoceanic canal.

“We’re afraid they’re going to leave us in the street,” a protester told local press during a peaceful march in Nueva Guinea, in the La Fonseca region of the southern Caribbean.
