Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a fresh upheaval and the removal of a wildly unpopular rule, Nicaragua is currently beginning a new upheaval. A country having only 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic countries along with tyrannies, and they are beginning to protest concerning it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and lots of countries were pouring aid into the fairly poor country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when strains are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, several of those same countries have commenced scaling back or stopping all aid to the country, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The fragmentation of the country started in November 2008 subsequent to local election and leader started speaking concerning the indiscretions happening in the organization. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Rapidly the population started to distrust the whole governmental organization, and have thus started performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Charges of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are implication that they are attempting to restrict media access and control the reports leaving the country. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly mounting poverty level of its citizens, has made several to think that violence will ensue in the country before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal about their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
