“In what seems like a whole lifetime away now, a group of nineteen of us travelled to Nicaragua to catch up with some of the communities that Amos has been supporting these past 5 years through the work of our partner CEPAD.

“Last Monday I was arrested sitting on the north side of Lambeth Bridge, on the first day of the Extinction Rebellion climate protests in London.

“When I come into Nicaraguan airspace I can feel my soul re-enter my body.” Those of you who’ve been there will resonate with those words of Nicaraguan author Gioconda Belli.
