“The 30 s is a day of national mourning,” was the slogan of a group of protesters with black flags who gathered this morning in the Plaza San Francisco, in Guayaquil.
“It’s a day on which all that happened could have been avoided, nothing justifies a death and even more the death of our police brothers,” said one of the protesters.
“The 30s is one of the most painful dates of recent years. Democracy did not triumph, personal interests triumphed. But here we are as a people, to remind people that they are being fooled, this is a day of national mourning.”
“How many people have fallen! How many families have suffered the lack of that loved being by the incompetence of this government.”
The events of September 30, 2010 began as a police revolt against a wage law, the same that is described by the government of Rafael Correa as a planned coup attempt against him.
