Steve Roser – Lord Mayor’s International Medal


Steve Roser is a founder member of the Bristol Link with Nicaragua.  As a volunteer working on social justice and human rights in Central America, he first visited the country in 1985 to take solidarity materials during the Contra war. Inspired by the Sandinista Revolution, Steve has been involved in projects such as bringing Fairtrade coffee producers to work in Bristol schools, organising the Copa Sandino football for Nicaragua tournament each year, supporting a girls football and life skills programme in Nicaragua, building and equipping nine preschools for under-fives in Puerto Morazan and funding teacher training using Montessori teaching methods which he helped introduce to Nicaragua.

Have you ever wondered what the Fairtrade Mark really means? Whether Fairtrade really makes a difference to developing world farmers? Whether the system is really fair?

We will have lots of Fairtrade information, products for you to taste and at 2.30pm Junieth Maribel Leiva will be talking about her life as a 29 year old female coffee farmer in rural Jinotega, Northern Nicaragua. There will be a Q&A opportunity after the talk. Junieth’s Fairtrade co-operative is part of the Nicaraguan Soppexcca group of co-operatives and we will have Soppexcca coffee on sale at the event.

Junieth is in Bristol for Fairtrade Fortnight and is being hosted by Bristol Link with Nicaragua (BLINC).
