National strike paralyzes Ecuador on Seventh Day of Protests
by Harvey Goldberg
The strike dramatically impacted Cuenca on Wednesday. Streets were largely deserted of vehicle traffic. There was no taxi or bus service. Police and army officers blocked off the central square in downtown Cuenca. A huge march of workers, students, and indigenous people gathered before noon. Things calmed down during mid-day, but in the evening there were running battles between protesters and security forces, which responded by lobbing teargas canisters.
