Ecuador to Confront Opposition Designs

Quito, Dec 22 (Prensa Latina) Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa has warned the opposition that he will mobilize the people to face attempts to destabilize the country through strikes and protests.

If you (the opposition) take to the streets 10,000 or 15,000 people using your wealth and pressing small business people operating in your areas, we will follow suit by doubling or tripling that figure, stressed Correa.

At a military promotion ceremony in Guayaquil on Friday, the Ecuadorean president said the people's revolution counts on the support from the silent, overwhelming majorities, as occurred in the polls on September 30.
