Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a fresh revolution and the dismissal of a wildly hated government, Nicaragua is now again creating a new upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can infiltrate democratic nations along with dictatorships, and they are starting to make noise about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and several nations were pouring aid into the relatively improvised country to keep its democracy alive. Now that tensions are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy seems to be in trouble, several of those same nations have commenced cutting back or stopping total aid to the nation, forcing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive towards the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the country.

The destruction of the nation began in November 2008 following local election and officials started speaking about irregularities going on in the system. Almost immediately after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Quickly the people began to doubt the entire governmental organization, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Charges of taking away democratic freedoms are being hurled at the existing government, as are suggestions that they are attempting to restrict media access and regulate the news exiting the nation. All of this, paired with the rapidly mounting poverty level of its inhabitants, has led most to think that violence will break out in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more voiced concerning their anger with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
