This Special Report contains a collection of basic documents and data pertaining to the character of the Nicaraguan democratic resistance. The purpose of this Report is to partially answer the question: "who" is the democratic resistance?

These documents provide an insight into the debate about the relationship between civilian and military leaders within the resistance, about the organizational nature of resistance military forces (especially those of the FDN), and about the political programs of those struggling for freedom against the Soviet-equipped and Cuban-advised Sandinista dictatorship.
