In July of 1979, after years of fighting the repressive Somoza regime, the Frente Sandinista de Liberacíon Nacional (FSLN) and their allies seized Managua and with it the seat of Nicaragua’s government. The deposition of the Anastasio Somoza Debayle marked the end of a four decades long dynasty defined by cruelty and cronyism. Under the thumb of the Somocista government, the majority of Nicaraguans were denied or lacked access to education, health services, running drinking-water, and in
During the 18th and 19th century, from 1776 to 1804, two nations were fighting for their independence. Latin America and America wanted to free themselves from their mother colonies that were dominating them. They had independence movements in which they fought for their freedom. The American Revolution and the Latin American Revolution were similar because they had similar motivations for the causes of their movements. Both of the nations were inspired by ideas of the Enlightenment such as natural rights. Both nations were also experiencing mercantilism by their mother colonies, Spain and Great Britain, and wanted to free themselves and control their own economies. Although they had similar goals, the consequences of these events were different. Americans were more united and had a representative form of government, which granted more equality to their citizens than Latin Americans, who had less unity because of the various ethnic groups, resulting in rigid differences in social class.
This will be as much a tale about the Venezuelan people as it is about a returning immigrant who knows his homeland largely from memories and media. Though my experiences have shaped my outlook, my intention is to enter the country as a neutral and impartial writer, cognizant of daily life, yet oblivious to the fiery political discourse which consumes too many discussions.
This novel has many connections to The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano by Sonia Manzano because they both describe the struggle to find equality for minorities and the effort that is needed to be your true self. This novel discusses the topics of Slavery and women’s rights in Charleston, North Carolina during the 1800s and while The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano takes place during 1969, they both showcase a theme of discrimination throughout. The two novels are also both about growing up in places that are outdated and in need of socioeconomic change so that minorities are free from poverty and tyranny.

As a result poverty grew and the conflict between the poor and the rich became a big problem El Salvador had to deal with during the 20th century. A Central American Socialist Party was born and lead people against the government and in response the government of El Salvador at the time supported military death teams who killed anyone who supported that party.

229 years ago, was the start of The French Revolution. No historians have reached consensus to the exact reason for this major event in world history. Even though many of the issues that caused the revolution like rich getting richer and poor people getting poorer, I can barely imagine invading Buckingham Palace, beheading our Queen or breaking into a military facility full of weaponry.
Prior to gaining its independence, America endured various controlling methods brought on by the Crown that were focused on directly benefiting Britain, rather than Britain providing much-needed support and assistance to the colonists attempting to settle the new rugged land. While attempts to control every aspect of daily life in the colonies was nothing new, the most critical and obviously selfish move was The Stamp Act of 1775 (Tindall & Shi, 2010). This tax, proposed by Chief Minister of Britain, George Grenville, and enforced by King George III, was the first law or tax passed without allowing any voice or opportunity for repeal from the colonists. The Stamp Act was proposed by Grenville as part of his strategy to raise revenue not
Though one must question why was the Nicaraguan President Jose Zelaya overthrown? Was it personal interests again as it was in Hawaii or was it protecting the Nicaraguan citizens? As saw before in Hawaii, it
The history between the U.S. and Nicaragua has always been aimed at making sure there politically ideologies remain in line with our own. With the spread of communism, the U.S. had been involved in Nicaragua since 1912. The U.S. has acted as Big Brother and used military force when pro U.S. leaders were facing rebellion. Unfortunately in 1936 when the U.S. began training the Nicaraguan National Guard, there was a forceful takeover by a man named Somoza Garcia. The era of rule under the leadership and guidance of Garcia lasted for 43 years until a group known as the “FSLN” which stands for the Sandinista National Liberation Front was created which was essentially anti Somoza Garcia. The FSLN was a communist group which wanted to make Nicaragua a socialist state. Ultimately the group took control of the country and committed numerous human rights violations and also stole foreign aid for themselves. So with this takeover began a very rocky and difficult relationship with the U.S.
Pancho villa was a man who not only was a legend. He was a revolutionary hero, military leader, and a fugitive. Many people know him as the person who fought for the rights of the poor. He was there to support his kind and protect them from what they call the “rich people.” That’s how the Mexican revolution began. Before he was known as “Francisco Villa”, he was Jose Doroteo Arango Arambula, born June 5, 1878 in San Juan Del Rio, Durango, Chihuahua, Mexico.
It is worth to mention that the white council and Ostrog struggle to control the new awake Graham, as to make successful appeals, politicians have to associate themselves with "symbol venerated by the masses"(Lebow 75) and the sleeper was the most potent symbol in the society. After the council defeated and London is relit " the re-illumination of the city came with starting abruptness… the world was incandescent" (Wells 107). The city re-emerges in a false hope, the light is not gradual but instead:; this acts as a reminder that even though the council has been ousted, their systems and structure are still in place as Ostrog states"let them revolt, let them win And kill me and my like. Others will arise—other masters. The end will be the same" (Wells 188).
Start of the twentieth century it seemed like El Salvador finally establishes a viable government and began building an economy (Background, 2012). Then, the economic crisis of the 1930s occurs and the international markets plummeted and so did El Salvador. Externally, El Salvador was not a huge contender in global markets, but internally the social, political and economic environment in El Salvador was becoming tense and in 1932 the peasant workers in the rural countryside raised up against the land elites (Benavides, 2008).
