#Ecuador #EcuadorAppreciationMonth:

I wrote this in 2010 but it speaks to me today. Recent events make me reflect on the historical struggle for justice - and how if we are not careful- people will write a story that will cause us to hate our own. 
The Ecuadorian Massacre of 1922 - or - #LasCrucesSobreElAgua - is one of those stories. The government reports that only 100 were killed on November 15, 1922. But other sources cite over 1500 people were killed that day. 
La Lucha continues… #KnowYourHistory #BeEmboldenedByYourHistory #OurAncestorsGotOurBacks

#PrimerGritoDeIndependencia #Ecuador. #DiezDeAgosto

August 10th, 1809 marks the first battle cry for independence from Spain in Ecuador. The battle was not successful - Ecuador gained independence many years later. But even then, slavery was not abolished (1852) even when Ecuador gained independence from Spain (1822) and from Gran Colombia (1830). So when I think about independence days, I always wonder - independence for who? 
Every cry for freedom is important - but we must be willing to fight for everyone’s freedom. Everyone. 
Happy Ecuador Appreciation Month!
