A group of opponents marched the yesterday afternoon en route to the via a la Coast highway, near the Puerto Azul gated community. The protest was peaceful and did not feature the presence of political leaders.
The traffic soon paralyzed. And cars occupied several kilometers for more than an hour and a half.
The police, together with the transit authority, attempted in several opportunities without success to open a lane to lighten the traffic congestion. But it was impossible.
One of the banners said: “Sorry if my protest collapses your traffic, but your indifference collapses the future of my country.”
The manifestation convened by social networks is the first in this area of the city. And the fifteenth registered in Guayaquil. Its participants, for the most part, supported the candidacy of Guillermo Lasso. Others, uncomfortable with the label, prefer to describe themselves as demonstrators in defense of democracy.
