11 October - Panama Revolution Day
Arias took office on October 1, 1968, demanding the immediate return of the Canal Zone to Panamanian jurisdiction and announcing a change in the leadership of the National Guard. President Arias removed the two most senior officers and selected Colonel Bolivar Urrutia to command the Guard.
On October 11, 1968 the Guard staged a coup and removed Arias from the presidency. A Provisional Junta of Government was established on October 13. The overthrow of Arias provoked student demonstrations and rioting in some of the slum areas of Panama City. However, the Guard retained control of the country during and after the rioting. Internal political issues in Panama involving the installing of a military junta put the Treaty negotiations in limbo until 1971.
