Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a fresh revolution and the dismissal of a widely disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently beginning a renewed upheaval. A country with only 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that dishonesty and greed can penetrate democratic nations along with dictatorships, and they are starting to protest about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and several nations were providing aid to the relatively improvised country to retain its democracy. Now that strains are starting to surface and the prospect of democracy seems to be in jeopardy, several of those same nations have begun scaling back or stopping all aid to the country, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now reluctant to invest in any new business in the region.

The destruction of the country began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and leader began talking concerning the misdeeds happening in the organization. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly detested by the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the population began to distrust the whole governmental organization, and have thus begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are suggestions that they are attempting to limit media access and regulate the news leaving the country. All of this, shared with the rapidly growing poverty level of its citizens, has made most to think that violence will happen in the country before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal regarding their anger with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
