As protestors attempt to oust Ortega, with a little help from their American friends, violent conflicts with the police are subsiding and the coup seems to be losing steam. Protests that were started three months ago by university students who were angry about the president's plan to reduce social security benefits, quickly escalated into demands that Ortega step down. But protestors are becoming disillusioned, as they begin to see through the disinformation and propaganda disseminated by the National Endowment for Democracy, Freedom House, other U.S. supported NGOs, and the international media. Observing at first hand the chaos and suffering that has ensued, many Nicaraguans who originally supported regime change, are withdrawing their support for the coup.
