President Rafael Correa called a rally on July 2 in defence of democracy
and the pro-poor Citizens' Revolution his government leads after plans by
the right-wing opposition for a violent coup were exposed.

“We are ready to defend the revolution against the coup plotters,” Correa
told thousands of supporters gathered outside the Presidential Palace on
the evening of July 2.

“We will remain firm in defending the revolution against the ultra-right.”
he added.
