All members of Congress in both houses, Democrats and Republicans together, approved the Nicaraguan Investment Conditionality Act of 2017, HR1918 (NICA), placing sanctions on the democratically elected government of Nicaragua which is fighting CIA sponsored gangsters, with the last vote taken in the Senate on November 27, 2018 and in the House on December 11, 2018.

As Ben Norton states in his December 14, 2018 article in Grayzone, “The chaos unleashed by last summer’s coup attempt has badly bled Nicaragua’s economy, plunging growth from a steady five percent to almost zero and eliminating tens of thousands of jobs. With the NICA Act, the US and its local proxies are hoping that exacerbating the economic desperation even further will bend a largely non-compliant Nicaraguan population to their will.” See https://grayzoneproject.com/2018/12/14/congress-sanctions-nicaragua-nica-act/

That means Senator Bernie Sanders and Congresswoman Barbara Lee voted to support the CIA’s latest attack on Nicaragua to maximize the profits of the capitalist class.

The people of Nicaragua support their government and oppose NICA. See “Nicaragua Rejects US Congressional Passage of NICA Act”, 12/12/18 at https://www.telesurenglish.net/news/US-Congress-Approves-the-NICA-Act-Against-Nicaragua-20181212-0013.html

Only socialist Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party oppose NICA and the CIA’s attempt to overthrow the democratically elected government of Nicaragua. You can and should change your voter registration to either of these two parties now. See https://registertovote.ca.gov/
