New Photos: Ecuador's National Strike in Quito / by Bear Guerra

Here are Bear's images from the national strike that lasted three days, as it was seen in Quito. More protests are likely on the way, largely led by indigenous and labor leaders, and students. Note how the police shields are inscribed with the words "I'm a cop and a brother, too" or "I'm a cop and a father". Everyone else is carrying plywood shields like they did "in the 90s" when governments were toppled in quick succession by popular protests.
