Police Launch Massive Protest in Ecuador

QUITO—Members of Ecuador's national police and air force Thursday launched a massive strike against the government of President Rafael Correa.

The heated protests started after the Correa administration went ahead with overhauls that will cut benefits and affect decorations that increase remuneration for the police and military.

Police officials burned tires in the streets and protested against the government, while air force officials shut down the airport in Quito. The army has said it supports President Correa.

The protests have spread to other parts of Ecuador, and now include other public sector workers affected by the new legislation. Reports said that students have also started to protest.

Political analysts said the unrest is creating a political challenge for the Correa administration, especially as the military and police remain powerful political constituencies in the Andean nation.

Radio Quito reported that banks and other businesses in Ecuador were closing due to a lack of security. Various bank robberies have taken place in the southern city of Guayaquil.

Guards at the nation's Congress refused to open the doors to lawmakers who wanted to enter the national assembly.

The protests come, according to political analysts, as opposition legislators in the Congress have been meeting to try to force Mr. Correa to call early elections.

A police official, said 40,000 police officers are protesting across the nation. He added that 35,000 members of the military are supporting the demonstrations.

The national police started a large protest at a police barracks in the capital on Thursday to oppose the government's policies.

Newspaper El Comercio reported on its Web page that more than a 1,000 police officers protested in front of the barracks in the northern part of Quito, marching and chanting, "Correa is in trouble, as he messed with the police."

Mr. Correa, a left-leaning president, went to the barracks in Quito on Thursday morning and told the protesters that he won't back off from his government's changes.

"If you want to kill the president, kill him," Mr. Correa said in a speech in front of the protesters. "This president won't take a single step backwards," he added.

Mr. Correa took office in January 2007, and won again in elections in 2009. His term

It proves just how powerful people can get when angry, and what could really happen.

Chaos like this could start really easily.

That's why people at the top don't want to over do it, or push the masses off the deep end otherwise there would be a mass protest, or worse.

Funny thing is Sav I alway's see you posting up negative subjects like earthquakes, volcano's, etc. I even remember subjects like Mt Katla was going to expode bla bla bla..
Remember folks if you want to block post's from known disinfo or wacko's go to the friends and foe's section of the control panel.

In no time you won't have to sort out through all that crap they post.

Yes lets see what this brings. Will it spread? How will others in different nations look at this. As a role model or???? I am sure governments will be keeping a close watch on how this is handled.

:look:

Good point shag, I think this along with the Euro protest are a real eye opener especially for the warring parties here in the states. 100,000 people took to the streets in the Euro capital to voice their concern. :roll: As much as we all were trained by the movies to hate the unions they have maintained a livable wage for at least some of us, meanwhile everyone else like myself has to go from job to job working like nuts and getting the same pay as my equal got in the 70's (but without insurance :bullshit: ), the crime is not the lazy Greeks or those damn unions the crime IMHO is that we are allowing these issues to still divide us as us & them. C'mon folks time to bust out dark side of the moon throw on Wizard of Oz and get your lady gaga's out of your damn system! :ohno: PS Sav your are da kine! stay human :mrcool:
Shall we again? We shall again!

it's called responsibility for ones own words,acts and deeds.
something you,the greeks,the spanish or all the rest over there know NOTHING about.
SOCIALISM WORKS...
if your goal is anarchy in the streets.
and it is,for the unions,as it is clear for the world to witness
