The National Guard mostly held back in most cases, trying to identify, gather information and spy on the participants. In other instances however, the police tried to more directly intimidate protesters and in Valles Centrales three individuals with military bearing and cloaked in the camouflage of the National Guard tried to break through a barricade before being repelled by the masses and having to speed away. This show of force leaves no doubt on the evaluation of the comrades of Sol Rojo, that this “United Day of Countryside and City on April 12, 2021, has been a great day for the class struggle”.

Furthermore, comrades in Ecuador carried out actions marking the end of the recent electoral farce in their country. On Sunday the electoral office confirmed, that Guillermo Lasso gained 52,52% of the votes in run-off election. A former banker, he represents the interests of the comprador bourgeoisie. His election further indicates, how the bourgeoisie becomes less and less capable to spread their sham of “Socialism of the 21st Century” as revisionism has reared its ugly head with this disguise too many a time and has demasked itself blatantly in front of the masses with the last two presidents.

In Sucre, Colombia, the inhabitants waged a successful struggle for the provision of drinking water in the beginning of this month. This has not been the first of actions. For three months activities have been conducted to ensure the access to drinking water. This time however, protesters blocked a central highway, vital for transportation, with burning tires, halting all traffic. The combativeness of the action forced the municipal administration to act. Within two hours of the start of the blockade, offers were extended to the protesters with the promise to immediately start pumping fresh drinking water again to the affected communities.
