Indigenous and social movements have pointed out that they will continue to protest until the IMF loan conditions are eliminated.

President Lenin Moreno called on Indigenous movements to “dialogue” the decree 883 that ended fuel subsidies and reduced workers’ rights, unleashing massive protests against the government.

“Let’s sit down to talk, let’s sit down and talk about decree 883, let’s talk about where your resources should go, and make sure they go to those who need it most,” Moreno said in a 20-second message to the nation.

However, Indigenous and social movements pointed out that they will not dialogue until the government eliminates the IMF policy package, and till Moreno, Romo, and Jarrin to step down. “This does not stop until the IMF leaves Ecuador,” the Conaie said.

Meanwhile, artists, intellectuals, professors, lawyers, and other professional associations have been publishing manifests as they continue their call for President Moreno to immediately stop state violence.

“It is urgent that the international community condemns crimes against human rights which are happening in Ecuador,” professor Adoracion Guaman told Pichincha Universal.
