For those who missed #35veces19, here’s your @nicadispatch recap:
Jesus comes first. Christ and God. We’re all Christians. Oscar Duarte has indigenous blood. His grandmother was a Sandinista mayor. Rosario whispers in Daniel’s ear, then sits down. Then stands up again. Then sits. Nicaragua is Christian, Socialist and in-Solidarity. It’s in the new constitution, so it must be true. Rosario stands, whispers something to Daniel, waves, then sits.
Costa Rica is our sister nation. Evo has indigenous blood. Hello, Rigoberta (welcome back — what is this, your fourth year in a row? That’s great, have a seat). And how about #BronzeChavez! Viva Chávez, Carajo!
Shout out to Vinicio Cerezo, who was brave when the yanquis didn’t want him to be. Mel Zelaya still wears a cowboy hat because that’s what he does. Brief nods to Honduras’ other two presidents since the coup. Scattered applause for Juan Orlando Hernandez. President Sanchez is here too!
Nicolas! Nicolas! Nicolas! He’s the son of Chávez, you know.
Old Cuban man stands up, barley, and waves. Viva Palestine! Viva Sandino!
Cue music and fireworks. Rosario wants last word, but we can’t hear her over music and fireworks.
Everyone find the bus you came on.
