The Portland Central America Solidarity Committee, PCASC, was born on July 19th, 1979. That is the same day, month and year of the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua. Since then, our path has been fully committed to solidarity toward all the countries in the Americas. We have accompanied the struggle in El Salvador through all these years, and even though its democratic advances seem to have come to a halt, we have to remember what happened in Nicaragua when, in 1990, the Sandinistas were defeated in the presidential elections. “Ruling from below” was the motto that kept the Sandinistas in high spirits, and after 16 years of neoliberal governments, they came back to fulfill what had been left to do.
