As Nicaraguans confront a crisis, you may ask yourself why people should care what happens in an impoverished Central American nation thousands of miles from the centers of power.
Industrial nations amassed their wealth by pillaging the global south and slaughtering the indigenous. The savage war in El Salvador was only one of many chapters in this tragic saga.
