This reminds me of the immigrants protesting for right in the USA...

I blogged about it not too long ago, but basically, the immigrants in the US have organized a "Day Without and Immigrant" (May 1) here. The point is to show the immigrants really DO contribute to the US economy and help this country to function. We have over 11 million "illegal" immigrants here! Their jobs are important and their hardwork is essential, so I think that if they actually boycott on May 1, we're really going to feel it. And I think that's cool.

However, I can't say I know much about the Nicaraguan immigrant situation in CR...
