First Cry of Independence

On August 10, 1809 Ecuador declared independence from the King of Spain. This event is called "First Cry of Independence". Why? Because it was the first try for independence in the region. The intent was not succesful; however, it is considered a starting point for our country´s independence.
Do you have any idea of the dangers that people who participated in the movement had to face? Who were those patriots? Why did they want to be free? Those are many of the questions that you may ask yourself if you haven´t read enough about it.

  1. I would feel very proud and nervous too, I would be proud because I'm changing the way the people think, so they would fight for liberty and because I will inspire other countries to be free, I will be nervous because some spainiards can kill me because I'm thinking about independence and thinking about taking them out of the county.

    Well,I will feel happy and afraid at the same time.
    Afraid because of seeing people running and screaming on the streets and happy, because I will know that I formed part of an important event that gave freedom to all Ecuador.
    Thanks to our brave patriots,today we live in a free country!

  5. I would feel very well because it would be our county's first intent of freedom from Spain, but I would feel a bit sad because we didn't succeed our goal.

    I would feel very honoured and patriot because this day was a moment in which Ecuador felt sovereign and proud to show the world that tyranny can be defeated.

  9. If I was part of such a great day I would feel really proud of the people who fought for our country, because it helped to have equally rights between all the races: negros, cholos, indians, whites, etc.

    I think August 10th was a great day for Ecuadorians beacuse this event was the first step of our independance process. We finally got independant after October 9th 1822. Now all the people of Ecuador can celebrate with their family or friends special day because it is a holiday !

    People at that time must be very excited and full of anxiety, but at the same time their need for freedom and justice pushed them to cry for our independence from Spanish rule.
    I think I would feel the same, as a patriotic ecuadorean.
