Nicaragua - A Nations Right To Survive

A Documentary Film By John Pilger

John Pilger's 1983 film about the small nation of Nicaragua and its right to survive investigates the corruption in Central America. In 1979, the Sandinistas won a popular revolution in Nicaragua, putting an end to decades of the corrupt US-backed Somoza dictatorship. They based their reformist ideology on that of the English Co-operative Movement, but was to prove too ‘radical’ for the Reagan administration.
In this film, Pilger describes the achievements of the Sandinistas and their "threat of a good example".
