Abstract This article, according to the criteria of most catastrophic é classifications, takes the catastrophe term to a little wide spread dimension, i.e. social causes and their effects against tourism; it seeks to insert this symptom into the subversion losses that produce the sector in the short and medium term. In this sense, the objective of this work was to analyze the impact of the October 2019 national unemployment on tourism activities in the city of Quito, Ecuador. In order to carry out the investigation, a documentary bibliographic review was carried out, which allowed to support the position of the authors on the basis of information collected and related to the case of national unemployment carried out in october 2019 in Ecuador. It was found in the review that the effects de of the catastrophes, regardless of their origin, are diverse, but all impact the population and its economy as it did in the city of Quito. While these are of a natural nature, with a reduced duration of time, their action is devastating, the damage and restoration require considerable time and effort;; but there are also catastrophes from other origins, such as the human, with characteristics other than the previous one, where the time of tragedy can be extended and become torture; as could be the case of a social uprising with repercussions that will always go against innocent affected, the tourist and the common citizen.

Keywords : human catastrophe; social uprising; tourism; economy; tourism prestige.
