ROCHESTER COMMITTEE ON LATIN AMERICA PRESENTATION
“Perspectives on Nicaragua:
Two progressive viewpoints on current Nicaraguan reality”
Wednesday, September 5th, 2018 at 7:00 PM
Downtown United Presbyterian Church
121 North Fitzhugh St., Rochester
This timely program will examine the recent anti-government protests and violence in Nicaragua. Generally, the American and international press has blamed the Nicaragua government of President Daniel Ortega for the attacks on citizens, police, and infrastructure. Because of almost uniformly anti-government coverage of these events, it’s difficult to discern the complicated reality on the ground.
Michael Argaman and Arnold Matlin will present their views on what is really happening in Nicaragua. Both Michael and Arnie are long time ROCLA members with deep, historical, involvement in Nicaragua. Dr. Karleen West, Associate Professor of Political Science and International Relations at SUNY Geneseo, will moderate the debate.
This event will surely bring more light to the current situation in that country than recent conflicting media coverage has provided.
