Nicaragua then and now:  Long Term Impacts of US Policy


Paul Dix:  Paul is a professional photographer.  From 1985 to 1990 he was based in Nicaragua as the photographer for Witness for Peace, a US organization opposed to US funding of the Contra War.

Pam Fitzpatrick:  Has worked as coordinator of the north pacific US office of Witness for Peace and was very involved with the Sanctuary Movement in the early 1980s.


In 2002, Paul and his partner, Pam, began return trips to Nicaragua searching for the people he previously photographed.  In 2011 this culminated in the publishing of a compelling bilingual photo/testimony book, “Nicaragua: Suriving the Legacy of US Policy.”
