Categories: Latin America, Ecuador, Freedom of Speech, Politics, Protest

“Major Ecuadorian newspapers ran the same cover today [August 10] — “For Freedom of Expression” — to protest President Rafael Correa’s increasing verbal and legal attacks on the independent media. The President devoted 42 minutes to his State of the Union speech today to criticism of the press”: Adam Isacson reports in his Tumblr blog [1], where he also shares images of the newspaper covers.
