Summary
During the 1970s, the small impoverished Central American country of Nicaragua fought a bloody battle against the dictatorship of Somoza, which survived due to US support. This struggle for freedom eroded into a corrupt government run by Daniel Ortega, the former revolutionary hero, who amassed tremendous personal wealth as he positioned himself for a lifetime presidency. Nicaragua--Dictatorship Restored? focuses on the preparations for the 2011 elections. While Nicaragua's Constitution does not allow leaders to serve consecutive terms, Ortega organizes his campaign by manipulating friendly Supreme Court judges into circumventing the national law. To win reelection, Ortega persecutes members of the opposition, intimidates public employees, and abuses state resources. Several activists representing the ""youth movement"" initiate a protest against Ortega's unconstitutional candidacy, but despite their efforts, he wins reelection. Nicaragua--Dictatorship Restored? is a vivid reminder of how quickly power can corrupt and undermine youthful ideals
