Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a fresh revolution and the dismissal of a wildly hated rule, Nicaragua is now again creating a new upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can infiltrate democratic countries along with dictatorships, and they are starting to protest regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and lots of countries were offering aid to the fairly poor country to retain its democracy. At this time when strains are starting to increase and the outlook of democracy seems to be in danger, several of those same countries have started cutting back or stopping all aid to the nation, forcing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The fragmentation of the nation started in November 2008 after local elections were finished and leader began talking about irregularities going on in the organization. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Rapidly the people started to doubt the entire governmental organization, and have now started performing protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to limit media access and control the information exiting the nation. Altogether this, combined with the quickly growing poverty level of its citizens, has made many to feel certain that violence will happen in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal regarding their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
