Ecuador President Tear Gassed - Is Hospitalized

 

Civil unrest broke out in Ecuador. The president, Rafael Correa, came to speak at the police barracks when the police allegedly pelted him with tear gas and water. The 47-year-old was hospitalized from the effects the gas had on him.

The Peruvian government sealed its borders to Ecuador as the civil unrest took place. Their president Alan Garcia showed support for Correa´s administration.

Hundreds of police were involved in the outbreak. Roadblocks were made out of burning tires in attempts to block highways. Schools in Quito were shut down and some banks were sacked.

I´d never trust a revolution begun by people in a position of authority. It´s always just a grab for more power because they´ve gotten a taste and want more.
