the United States is leading the charge against the project by supporting right-wing opposition parties and a handful of bribed campesino groups protesting its construction. In 2016, for example, two U.S. diplomats were caught helping organize opposition protests.

This isn't wrong, but Ortega now basically runs the country as his own little clique- literally his family makes up the government. I'd prefer a right ruler over this at this point. The further I read, the more I feel the 'anti-imperialism' here is of the tankie form rather than a legitimate form.

Reddit siteowners neutered the sub and it went to shit, despite the art at the bottom. I recommend, despite disputes many have with ziq (including me), that everyone advises moving to Raddle. Drama aside, I much prefer the mods and admins here to a team handpicked by the capitalists running Reddit.
