Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a fresh uprising and the dismissal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently beginning a fresh upheaval. A country with merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can infiltrate democratic nations along with dictatorships, and they are beginning to speak openly about it.

After helping defeat 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 poor nation to retain its democracy. Now that tensions are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in trouble, many of those same nations have begun scaling back or eliminating all aid to the country, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The disintegration of the country started in November 2008 following local election and officials started talking about indiscretions happening in the organization. Shortly 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 future 2011 race. Rapidly the people began to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the existing government, as are implication that they are attempting to restrict media access and control the reports going out of the country. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly increasing poverty level of its citizens, has led most to believe that fighting will break out in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly voiced about their anger with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
