Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a recent uprising and the dismissal of a widely unpopular government, Nicaragua is at the present time starting a fresh upheaval. A country with merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that dishonesty and greed can infiltrate democratic nations along with tyrannies, and they are starting to protest 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 providing aid to the fairly unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. At this point when tensions are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in danger, several of those same nations have begun cutting back or abolishing all aid to the country, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive towards the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new business in the nation.

The destruction of the country began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began talking concerning the indiscretions happening in the organization. Almost immediately after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the population started to be suspicious of the entire governmental system, and have now begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to limit media access and control the news exiting the country. All of this, paired with the rapidly mounting poverty level of its citizens, has made several to think that fighting will happen in the country before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more vocal about their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
