Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a fresh uprising and the dismissal of a wildly hated government, Nicaragua is at the present time creating a fresh upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations as well as tyrannies, and they are starting to protest about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and lots of nations were pouring aid into the relatively unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. At this point when strains are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in trouble, many of those same nations have commenced scaling back or stopping completely any aid to the nation, forcing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive towards the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 following local election and officials started speaking about misdeeds happening in the system. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Rapidly the people started to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have thus started staging protests and raising rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are suggestions that they are seeking to limit media access and control the information exiting the nation. All of this, paired with the swiftly growing poverty level of its residents, has led many to feel certain that fighting will happen in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly vocal concerning their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
