Sandanista Revolution 32nd Anniversary
Daniel Ortega leads in the polls just prior to the scheduled elections in November. Although the largest country of Central America, it is one of the poorest in the hemisphere.
The Contras coupled with the U.S.'s economic blockade against the new socialist-leaning government, devastated Nicaragua. They are steadily trying to transition to a socialist state.
The leader of the Great Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Muammar al-Gaddafi, sent a greeting to the President of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega Saavedra, for the celebration of the 32nd anniversary of the Sandinista Revolution.
Gaddafi, who together with his people, is a victim of the bombing of the imperialist powers in the world, said in his congratulatory letter that the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution served to "build a modern Nicaragua and activated the strength of the Left in Latin America and the Caribbean."
He also thanked Nicaragua for the support given to the Libyan people during the imperialist aggression, which "strengthened our resolve and raised our morale."
The full text of the letter of the leader of the sister nation of Libya:
Commander Brother President
Daniel Ortega Saavedra
President of the Republic of Nicaragua
I congratulate you and I congratulate myself and the Libyan and Nicaraguan peoples and all in the free world for the XXXII Anniversary of the victory of the Sandinista Revolution that was founded to build the modern Nicaragua, activating the force of the Left in Latin America and the Caribbean with his alliance with the internationalist September Revolution.
It opened the way before his people and crowned his victory with the historic struggle for the liberation forces in Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Brazil and the Caribbean States, so that this way his authentic face recovers Latin America.
Beneath the bombings of the aircraft of the Crusader NATO Alliance, your suffering brothers and children of the Libyan people endure their attempts to control their wealth and hinder their international role. I renew to you and your people the congratulations and appreciation of your noble and lofty positions in our support, you and the revolutionary leaders in Latin America and the Caribbean.
In addition, we rely on the continuity and duration of this support which has strengthened our determination and raised our morale.
Please accept, honorable friend, my highest esteem and consideration.
Leader of the Revolution
