    Evo Morales Decries Attack Against Indigenous People in Ecuador

Do not shoot against the people!" said the former president.

     Ecuador: Police Forces Violate Three Universities’ Autonomy

    In Ecuador, a week of protests is being held, with road blockades and mobilizations in the main cities, led by the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities (CONAIE) due to the increase in fuel prices.

    In response to the protests, the Ecuadorian government decreed a state of emergency on Saturday, first in three cities, and then extended the measure to six.

    On the ninth day of demonstrations, Quito dawned full of road closures in the north, south and east of the city, as well as in the historic center, where the Government Palace is located, and in the center-north, where the Salesian, Central and National Polytechnic universities are located, which house hundreds of indigenous people who arrived in the capital from other provinces of the country.

    Due to disturbances registered in several areas of the city, mainly in the vicinity of the universities, the Municipality decided to suspend the integrated transport services of the Trolleybus and the Metrovía that run along the north-south longitudinal axis.

    The National Police informed that several operations are being carried out to guarantee security and public order.
