The following motion was passed at the Sheffield TUC Delegate Meeting on 24th July 2018
This Sheffield Trades Council wishes to send our support to our brothers and sisters within the trade union movement in Nicaragua.
We denounce the attempts by the right wing opposition forces and the violence they are using to bring down the democratic elected Government.
It is also clear that outside forces are involved in the internal affairs of Nicaragua aiding the opposition . President Ortega has agreed to the establishment
of a truth and security commission in a bid to restore peace in the country. This we believe is the way to proceed through dialogue and not the irrational use of force.
