Help Stop the Passing of the NICA Act StoryOne
Although Nicaragua is still the second poorest country in Latin America, the economy is growing at a rate of 4.5% per annum. This  stability and growth, however, is threatened by interference from the USA with the NICA Act. 

In October, the U.S. House of Representatives approved the Nicaragua Investment Conditionality Act, known as the NICA Act. If approved by the Senate, the NICA Act could see the U.S. block major international lending institutions from lending to Nicaragua. Institutions such as the World Bank, IMF and the Inter-American Development Bank could be blocked from giving loans that fund improvements in roads, ports, electricity and other infrastructure.

The Alliance for Global Justice is calling on us to implore our Senators to vote against this potentially detrimental bill.
