    Biographical Note

    Judith M. Cohen was a member of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) in the late 1980's and early 1990's in Nicaragua. She conducted several interviews with other citizens on the political and social instability of Nicaragua during that time period. Cohen was also a co-editor of a newsletter sent to Nicaraguan immigrant communities in New York.
    The Nicaraguan Solidarity Movement began in the United States and other nations as a response to the Nicaraguan Revolution to overthrow the Contra government in the 1980's. The campaign was led by the Sandinista National Liberation Front, also known as the FSLN to bring down the dictatorship and restore economic and political growth within Nicaragua. There was some United States involvement on both sides of the Contra War, and several solidarity groups rose within the United States to support the Nicaraguan movement. The Contra War officially ended with the signing of the Tela Accord in 1989, which resulted in the de-mobilization of both the Contra and FSLN armies.
