Songs of Love, Justice and HumanityWhat's really happening in Nicaragua? Is this a people's movement or a right-wing coup fomented by U.S. imperialism? Katia Cardenal, who in the eighties was one of the best known cultural ambassadors for the Sandinista-led government, as part of Duo Guardabarranco, says there is no question - the people are in the streets. She has marched with half a million people and watched snipers shoot them down. Cardenal will perform at La Pena on Saturday, July 14, in a benefit concert for the victims of violence; she will also give firsthand information. Kate's short conversation with her is a preview of what we will hear in more depth on Saturday night.
