Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the dismissal of a widely unpopular government, Nicaragua is currently starting a new upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations as well as 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 many nations were providing aid to the fairly unfortunate nation to retain its democracy. At this point when tensions are beginning to increase and the outlook of democracy looks to be in trouble, lots of those same nations have started cutting back or eliminating completely any aid to the nation, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be hesitant to invest in any new business in the nation.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 following local election and officials started speaking about indiscretions in the system. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the people started to be suspicious of the entire governmental organization, and have now begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are implication that they are trying to impede media access and control the news exiting the nation. Altogether this, shared with the rapidly growing poverty level of its inhabitants, has led many to think that fighting will break out in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more verbal about their anger with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
