This chapter analyzes Sandinista transnational activism in Western Europe in the immediate lead-up to the Nicaraguan Revolution. The work incorporates a host of emerging trends in Cold War history and in international history more broadly. Engaging with nonstate actors, the chapter taps into the transnational turn while melding the transnational with the international. The chapter describes the Sandinista impulse to take their political struggle to the global stage, particularly as the tercera faction successfully engaged with European social democrats to build a strong and lasting base of support across the Atlantic. Meanwhile, the chapter reveals explicit link between the nonstate activism of the Sandinistas and the Western European governments themselves.
