Homage to Sandino in Nicaragua.MANAGUA, Nicaragua.-The Government of Nicaragua and the State institutions paid tribute to Augusto Cesar Sandino, the inspiration of the Sandinista National Liberation Front.

The Board of directors and the deputies of the National Assembly celebrated the 84th anniversary of the death of the General of Free Men, leader of the Nicaraguan resistance who opposed the occupation of Nicaragua by the U.S. Army.

Augusto Cesar Sandino was named as a national hero in 2010, as he is considered as an activist who permanently rejected the American interference.

Sandino’s ideals were the motivation of the Sandinista National Liberation Front to reject the interventionism of the USA that came to an end with the triumph of the Popular Sandinista Revolution in 1969.
