Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the removal of a widely unpopular rule, Nicaragua is at the present time creating a fresh upheaval. A country having only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can break into democratic countries along with dictatorships, and they are starting to speak openly about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and lots of countries were providing aid to the fairly poor country to retain its democracy. Now that tensions are starting to surface and the prospect of democracy appears to be in trouble, several of those same countries have started scaling back or stopping all aid to the country, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The destruction of the country began in November 2008 following local election and officials began speaking about irregularities in the organization. Shortly after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Rapidly the people started to distrust the entire governmental structure, and have thus begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are suggestions that they are attempting to limit media access and control the reports exiting the country. All of this, shared with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has made many to believe that violence will happen in the country prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more voiced about their anger with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
