Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a recent revolution and the dismissal of a widely disliked government, Nicaragua is currently starting a new upheaval. A nation with only 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations in addition to dictatorships, and they are beginning to protest regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and several nations were providing aid to the fairly poor nation to retain its democracy. At this time when stresses are beginning to surface and the prospect of democracy looks to be in trouble, several of those same nations have started cutting back or stopping completely any aid to the nation, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being unfriendly towards the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now reluctant to invest in any new business in the nation.

The fragmentation of the nation began in November 2008 following local election and officials started speaking about indiscretions going on in the organization. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly detested by the Nicaraguan people, was able to try for re-election in the future 2011 race. Quickly the people started to distrust the whole governmental system, and have thus begun staging protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Charges of eliminating democratic freedoms are being hurled at the current government, as are suggestions that they are attempting to limit media access and control the news exiting the nation. All of this, combined with the quickly growing poverty level of its residents, has made most to think that fighting will ensue in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal about their displeasure with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
