Title

apron

Description

Two aprons made from plain white fabric scraps and spray-painted in red, "No mas impuestos / no mas corrupcion / AMPRONAC" ("no more taxes / no more corruption"). AMPRONAC was a women's branch of FSLN (Sandinistas), titled in English the Association of Women Concerned About National Crisis and then re-named the Luisa Amanda Espinoza Association of Nicaraguan Women.

These aprons were brought from Nicaragua by Sr. Alicia Ramirez, SL, who lived in Nicaragua 1976-1977 for the Loretto Third World Experience and returned as a nurse, 1980-1984. She remembers AMPRONAC women wearing this type of apron and beating metal pans during protests about water issues.
