AK-47, Your Daily Commute

If you walk through the streets of Nicaragua, its not rare to see at least a couple of AK47’s, rifles and other military weapons on your day to day life.

The Nicaraguan dictatorship of Ortega has used armed civilians (govenment fanatics) against the opposition. Now with an economic recession, these same oppressors have become feared criminals and thief’s on the streets of Nicaragua.

Locals have to get used to living under these fear inflicted conditions on their daily life, but it has also become a threat to the local economic development, tourism, which is one of the main economic drivers of Nicaragua and also external investments.
