Today is the 30th anniversary of the victory of the FSLN (the Sandinistas) in Nicaragua.

Photo is of the FNT (FSLN-affiliated labour central) monument to the workers and peasants who fought with the FSLN against the Somoza dictatorship. Situated in the centre of Managua devastated (and never really rebuilt) by an earthquake in the early 1970's.
