Reader is seeking boycott of invading Nicaragua

While most of us expats who live in Costa Rica deplore the invasion of Costa Rica territory by Nicaragua, we feel that there is nothing we can do to stop it. Probably not, but what we can do is to boycott Nicaragua and ask our friends abroad to do the same.

We can avoid making our 90-day visa runs to Nicaragua, and we can stop buying Nicaragua products. We can ask our friends to not visit Nicaragua and to stop buying things from Nicaragua. Some may say that this is an idle gesture, not likely to stop Comrade Ortega, but boycotts can and have contributed to change by errant nations, such as the boycott of South African goods at the time when Nelson Mandela was held in prison.

If you support this effort to boycott Nicaragua, please send me an e-mail at and I will keep a count of those who will participate in this effort. I will not keep a list of names nor will names be published, but I will keep count of the hundreds, possibly thousands who will boycott Nicaragua.

Thank you for your support.
