Well, Correa has been long been threatening to do this, dropping lots of quotes like "we are no one's colony." Yesterday el presidente finally said “see ya” to the World Bank representative and is "reserving the right" to cancel the debt.
The BBC (this is randomly a cute “learn english” article with a little glossary and everything.)
Also came across this photo.
"A police officer throws a stone at students during protests Tuesday near Ecuador's Congress in the capital, Quito."
Look how young that cop is. (I guess he hasn’t gotten his license for the tank yet. His older brother must have been around when I got teargassed.) Kids throwing rocks at each other. Ecuadorian politics redux.
