Photo Journalism Friday: FSLN Revolution Day

Today, July 19th marks the 34th anniversary of the Sandinista Revolution of 1979 – the day that the National Liberation Army defeated the Somoza dictatorship in the Nicaraguan Revolution.

– Today all buses in the country change their stationed route to Managua.

As we made our way from Granada to San Juan del Sur we passed bus load after bus load of FSLN (Sandinista National Liberation Front) supporters en route to Managua.

Every year on July 19th thousands of people from all over the country gather at Plaza La Fe in Managua to commemorate this historical event.
