The United States funds $ 1.5 million for the Nicaraguan opposition
With his ‘Sin Fronteras’ space, La Primerísima radio director William Grigsby determined the investment to be $ 1,572,315, spread across five areas of political action: youth, publicity, human rights, women entrepreneurs, and police system reforms.
In the latter case, entitled “Reforms of the Nicaraguan Police System”, the claim aims to summon experts and academics in order to formulate changes in the institution responsible for the maintenance of rules of procedure.
Grigsby believes that youth, propaganda and human rights are the main axes of the attempt to destabilize the FSLN government.
Established by the US Congress at the end of 1983, as a means of financing the so-called struggle against communism in the context of the Cold War, NED in the following years supported the civilian part of the armed movement (the Contras) that confronted the first government of the Sandinista Front.
NED funded the National Opposition Union (UNO), which was created in 1989 and decided that its candidate would be Violetta Barrios de Chamorro, says Sene Fronteras.
In the elections of 25 February 1990, with the specter of war as an electoral asset, the United Nations brought Barrios de Chamorro to the presidency, who began a nearly 17-year period of neoliberal governments in Nicaragua.
Funds intended to destabilize Nicaragua are channeled through the International Center for Special Enterprise, and three institutes, the Free Trade Unions, the National Democratic and Republican National Party, and the latter in the area of international affairs.
These corporations operate from the United States under the umbrella of the American Chamber of Commerce, the American Federation of Labor, Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), Democratic and Republican parties.
