US Senate launches attack on Nicaragua poverty programs

Tuesday, January 23, 2018


In an extraordinary move on the day before the US Senate’s Christmas recess, two Democrats sided with right-wing Republicans to introduce the so-called NICA Act which, if passed, would require the US government to veto loans from international financial institutions to Nicaragua.

While it is still a long way from becoming law, the bill suddenly looks like a more serious threat to that country’s social progress.
