The Story of Manuel Lopez



Manuel Lopez was a specialist in soils and fertilizers, was a Chilean refugee in Scotland since 1974. In the 80s, as an internationalist, went to Nicaragua to help the Sandinista Revolution. He did it by taking his knowledge of agriculture to work in two projects in the north of Nicaragua. On the 22nd of June, 1987 he was killed by a terrorist attack carried out by the C.I.A. backed "Contra Army". Manuel lived in Glasgow, Drumpchapel, and studied at Aberdeen with a scholarship from the World University Service. I remember him as a gentleman with a wife called Rosita and a 'wee' daughter.
