Nicaragua Project
...............................
Young brigadistas delivered the news about the Nicaraguan literacy campaign in every home in Managua, and throughout Nicaragua, and many became teachers, or began to formally learn to read and write. The large meeting at the Plaza de la revolucion in NIcaragua, see attached image, was a large gathering and dedicated to signing on teachers and students. This process went on into the early darkness. The revolution was only months old, having occurred less than 6 months previously. Tens of thousands attended the mass gathering. At the same time,Maurice Bishop visited Nicaragua to see how the literacy campaign was being carried out as he had plans to carry out a literacy campaign in his nation, Granada.
