Ecuador Declares State Of Emergency As Country Thrown Into Chaos

Recommended Posts

Equador's government has declared a state of emergency after police launched a chaotic rebellion over austerity measures that cut their benefits.

Incensed officers shoved President Rafael Correa around and pelted him with tear gas and water when he tried to speak at a police barracks in the capital. Correa, 47, was taken to hospital from the effects of the gas.

The state of emergency puts the military in charge of public order, suspending civil liberties and allowing soldiers to carry out searches without a warrant.

Hundreds of officers involved in the insurrection took over police barracks in Quito, Guayaquil and other cities. They also set up roadblocks out of burning tires that cut off highway access to the capital.

Scores of uniformed men overran the landing strip at Quito's main airport, forcing flights to be cancelled

Correa challenged the protesters to kill him, according to local media. "I'm not taking one step back. Gentleman, if you want to kill the president, here he is, kill him if you have the guts." The rebel officers responded with shouts, stones and teargas canisters, prompting Correa's bodyguards to spirit him from the scene.

The protests rapidly spread to bases and barracks in three provinces, with witnesses reporting looting, compounding a political crisis that could prompt the president to dissolve parliament and rule by decree until elections.

....

Correa is a US-trained economist .....

Another US-backed coup, similar to the Honduras debacle last year.

Might this have had something to do with it?

I ought to go check this first but hey its HPC, so what the hell.

I expect that President Rafael Correa is already a placeman. Ecuador was an early victim of the Economic Hitmen.

If the police cause a non-placeman to become president then you can expect a "re-coup"

One of the many reasons why the world is in such a state is that the so called champions of freedom are actually totally against the idea.

Im sure Austerity would be acceptable..if ALL get a piece.

Exactly - this is how the Elites(CIA?) are testing out putting in place their 'Juntas'

"The government has declared a state of emergency, putting the military in charge of public order and suspending civil liberties."

They create a deliberate confrontation (upsetting law and order) which is then used as an excuse to remove all your liberty and suspend Govt democracy under the threat of a 'Dictator' who directs gun law - because that's what the Elites become once they order this!
