For those of you who do not know, Quito, Ecuador is experiencing one of the largest protests in its history. I do not want to talk too much about the details of the protest as I do not think it is my place to do so. Instead I will leave a few links below that perhaps provide some relevant information about the current situation here because I think it is important that we all know what is going on in different parts of the world. Keeping in mind that the mode of manifesting Western hysteria through news outlets is very much present in situations like these thus it is important to read, think, and proceed cautiously and critically.
