“The only thing missing is the beginning of guarimbas”, Telesur was told in relation to the attempt of destabilization carried out in Ecuador by the most extremist sector of the native oligarchy and foreign intelligence bodies, starred by CIA, in their effort to overthrow the legitimate government of the economist Rafael Correa Delgado.

They want blood and they want deaths, and they do not want to take the blame; in this case, they left all in the hands of the manipulable and incautious people.

Note that, no matter the excuse, in this case, the presidential decree implementing an inheritance tax, which would essentially affect the greater fortunes, “led” those oligarchs to unleash the campaign of disrepute against the Government of the Citizen Revolution to create the chaos on the eve of the planned visit of Pope Francis to Quito.

To root out all of this, President Correa suspended the application of the referred legal instrument, and decided it became subject of open public debate, before passing it to the legislative body, which in legitimacy terms responds to the most transparent democracy.

Will they be contented with it?

The time came then for popular mobilizations and clarifying campaigns on the essence and consequences of a tax- very moderate, by the way- which aims at collecting the derisory sum of 50 million dollars, and that would affect only the 2 or 3 % of the population; nevertheless, the oligarchy and its integrated media system sold it as an embezzlement of the members of the governing party, Alianza País, at the cost of the pockets of people.

And it is evident that the recent events have common points with other processes on the continent.

Both, Venezuela and Ecuador are going through a difficult economic situation resulting from low oil prices, and it is coincident that in both countries the respective oligarchies benefit from these difficulties by burdening the most humble with the crisis, I.e., the most buoyant moments of both processes of change occurred when a barrel of hydrocarbon hovered or exceeded the $ 100.

Why has the price of oil and gas got so low in current times? Because the United States has maximized the production of these fuels on its territory, using the so-called fracking, obtained by means of hydraulic fracturing of shale rocks, ceasing to import large quantities of oil, and flooding the international market with increased bids of these products.

But let’s also remember that a few years ago, both, Ecuador and Venezuela went through difficult situations due to drought that significantly reduced power generation and caused power outages, and the opposition of both countries took advantage of that to create discontent and try to sweep away authorities.
Now they come for more. Washington is committed to further destabilization and overthrowing the governments of Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina; not even gigantic Brazil escapes the onslaught.
