'Nicaragua must survive.' Australian Campaign Lithograph by Julia Church

Soon after the 1979 overthrow of the U.S. backed Somoza dictatorship in Nicaragua by the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN), the Reagan administration formed a mercenary army called the Contras (Counter-Revolutionaries), to destroy the schools, health clinics and agricultural cooperatives supported by the FSLN. Screen printed by Another Planet Posters, this poster is a “Let Nicaragua Live” project campaign to send construction materials, school supplies, seeds tools and medical equipment to Nicaragua in the 1980s, to help counter the destruction caused by the Contras supported by the Trade Union Committee on Central America
