DescriptionThis image of a partially deteriorated mural depicts the CIA as an army helmet with the national guard helmets storming a town, with dead bodies on the ground. A two-headed snake with red, white and blue coloring rises out of the CIA helmet and appears to attempt control the ballot box. A man is building a wall with the sign "Reforma Agraria" (Agrarian Reform); a female in a guerrilla uniform holds up a rifle and a baby; and a child clings to alphabet letters. Sandino sits above, reading.
