The Free Costa Rica Movement (Movimiento Costa Rica Libre) was a far-right anti-Communist and ultra-Conservative political association in Costa Rica.[1][2] The group was founded in 1961 as Nationalist Movement (Movimiento Nacionalista). Some of its more noticeable actions were during neighboring Nicaragua’s Sandinista government in the 80s, as the group was strongly anti-Sandinista and considered Sandinista Nicaragua a treat to Costa Rica.[3] The group attacked Nicaragua’s embassy in 1981.[1] Besides the FSLN, the group was also enemy of several Costa Rican left-wing parties like United People and several farmers and workers organizations.[2] It was also a member of the World Anti-Communist League.
