Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the dismissal of a wildly unpopular government, Nicaragua is now again starting a new upheaval. A nation having just 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic nations as well as tyrannies, and they are starting to make noise about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and several nations were providing aid to the relatively poor nation to retain its democracy. Now that tensions are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in trouble, several of those same nations have started cutting back or abolishing completely any aid to the nation, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile towards the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began talking concerning the indiscretions going on in the system. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly detested by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the population started to distrust the whole governmental system, and have thus started performing protests and growing rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are insinuations that they are trying to limit media access and regulate the reports exiting the nation. All of this, combined with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has made many to feel certain that fighting will happen in the nation preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal concerning their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
