RUEDA-ESTRADA, Verónica. Peasant Mobilizations in Nicaragua (1990-2018): from Rearmed to the Auto-convocados. Inter.c.a.mbio [online]. 2019, vol.16, n.2, e37499. ISSN 1659-4940.

This paper analyzes the peasant mobilizations during the neoliberal agrarian reform (1990-2006), as well as the ones carried out during the Daniel Ortega regime (2007-2018) as a rejection of the extractive and construction policies of the Interoceanic Grand Canal. The sources are documentary and oral and it seeks to establish continuities and ruptures within the struggles of this sector during the last 40 years. The focus is placed on changes in the strategy of the peasantry, which from the ideological battles of the 1980´s were transformed into struggles for access to land in the 1990´s. Nowadays, peasant mobilizations in Nicaragua are also environmentalists and they fight together with civil society for national sovereignty and democracy.

Keywords : Neoliberal Land Policies; Extractivism; Interoceanic Grand Canal; peasantry; environmental struggles.
