CHRONICLES FROM GUAYAQUIL – ECUADOR

CHRONICLES  FROM GUAYAQUIL – ECUADOR

If You don’t know where Ecuador is, it is a small country in South America, between Colombia and Peru.
It was not easy for the Spanish invaders, to deal with our aboriginal people , who lived at that time in this region, The HUANCAVILCAS.
The city of   “Santiago de Guayaquil’  was founded 3 times, the first and second on the years 1,534 and 1,536 along the shore of the Guayas River, each time the city was attack and destroyed by the aboriginal people, finally the city was erected again on 1,538 at the foot of Santa Ana hill.
Guayaquil was founded by Spanish whom we glorified when we were kids, but when we got out of ignorance and we learned the reality of history, we didn’t want to even remember the names of this people, because they came to America only to kill, to steal, and to take away our natural resources. And what did they bring? Sicknesses that a that time we did not have in our continent like the flu, chicken pox, measles, leprosy, yellow fever, typhus, and canine rabbis.
The Spanish came to South America with the pretext of giving us civilization, what was the need for this in our aboriginal cultures, they had, at that time, laws, political and economic organization. In exchange we got domination, extermination and loss of our natural resources as they were shipped to other countries.
The truth is that all the word history, is a chain of success that brings shame to humanity. They were empires that had been using and abusing  a region or a country and when they extinguish their natural resources, what they do is move on to another region, if they are inhabitants in the new place, they don’t care to do anything to get what they want, dominate, killing and even genocide. That is why we have to realize that the biggest predator of the of the world is Man himself. If we don’t learn to leave in a peaceful communion with everyone else, we are condemned to repeat once again this sad history. Spanish, French, English, Germans, Russians, Midle East , Orientals, there isn’t one civilization that can keep its forehead up and doesn’t have the necessity of asking forgiveness for some of their acts throughout history.
I repeat, as I said before, I don’t want with what I say, to offend anybody in the present time, because most of this happened long time ago , and if in some case it is happening now, I hope is not too late to take heed we still have time to change, for humanity and for the planet.

Thank you, Spain

My grandfather toll me  when  I was 12 years old , at that time I felt the urgency to write and He said “forget about writing; you will not change anything by  writing or talking, people do not listen, they do not want to change, they do not care.”   But  I always want it to, especially now because is easier to get information about what happens around the word.

I listen a couple of days ago a newscaster from Spain say something that trigger  my urgency to write again (not to offend anybody because somethings happened a long time ago) please we can not deny History  please take responsibility.

The news person made a reply against a South American president for some offensive quotes against the Spanish government; he replied in this way  “those ignorant people must be grateful  that Spain went there to give them civilization and culture to save them from cannibalism – ignorance and criminality.”  I listen to this kind of appreciations so many times but now a person that has the ability to say that in a space that can reach all around the word, I consider this something very wrong  .

Please don’t  believe what a say, I repeat again we have now the easy way to find information  and please don’t deny History  what happens …happens long time ago

In the  XV  century  there lived in the American continent  70  millions aboriginal people.

One an a half century after   the  Spanish  – British  – English and French   arrived to the American continent   the population was decimated  to only  3  millions an a half .

The Spanish people  came to South America  with the pretense of giving us civilization  what need did our aboriginal culture  had   of civilization, they had a that time  formation of  laws , politics  and economy  . They did not need the civilization they gave to us to dominate us.

We have to say thank to Spain for  catholic religion (forced) because at that time if You weren’t   catholic You were   a child of Satan .

Language (forced) because if you don’t speak Spanish  You were an animal  You deserve only to live in slavery or die .

Lost of our natural resources  were shipped to Spain .

And  we can not forget  sickness most of that in our continent did not exist at that time . They brought  it with them  :   Flu  -chicken pox – measles  – leprosy  – yellow fever  – typhus  – rabbis   –   and why did this happen?  This was because the heroes that came to save us were a bunch of criminals , no body wanted to embark in an adventure to an unknown  destiny , so  the Spanish  Queen  emptied  the jails to give to   Cristobal Colon (Christopher Columbus) the crews for the ships  to conquer  America .

THANK YOU   SPAIN  FOR WHAT  YOU DID  TO US !
