Abstract

Deja Vu. Nicaragua had too much the feel for me of Mozambique two or three years ago, on the way to the Nkomati Accord with South Africa: an inspiring struggle, a humane and vital revolution, being slowly bled to death. A Jesuit priest, now working in Nicaragua's agrarian reform sector but also active in Chile before the coup, put the point to me with scalding simplicity. "In Chile," he said, "the Americans made a mistake. They cut off the revolution too abruptly. They killed the revolution but, as we can see from recent developments there, they didn't kill the dream. In Nicaragua they're trying to kill the dream."
