    BRITISH trade unionists and solidarity campaigners have united in opposition to US moves to cut off international finance to Nicaragua.

    Eight national and local British organisations and 128 individuals signed a statement, the Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign (NSC) said yesterday.

    They include Public Services International, the TUC, Unison, GMB, RMT, NUT, the Cuba Solidarity Campaign and the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign. The Nicaraguan Investment Conditionality Act (Nica Act) was presented to the US Senate on April 27.

    It implies, without evidence, that the popular Sandinista government is undemocratic and oppressive.

    Introducing the act, Republican Senator Ted Cruz stated: “Nicaragua and all freedom-loving people in Central America depend on the US for leadership.”

    The NSC said cutting off credit from the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank would jeopardise investment in education, social programmes, electrification, roads and other infrastructure initiatives.
