They seek to develop an economic model to prevent the application of IMF policies against the Ecuadorians.

The Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (Conaie) convened to form a popular parliament so as to outline an economic model and present it to President Lenin Moreno.

“We invite Ecuadorian organizations to join the Peoples and Social Organizations’ Parliament to develop a new economic model able to prevent the endorsement of new [policy] packages against the people.”

On Wednesday, Conaie revealed that talks with the government had been suspended due to persecution undertaken by the Ecuadorian state against social leaders. Among them is precisely Jaime Vargas, who is subjected to a fiscal inquiry for alleged “rebellion.”​​​​​​​

Conaie also announced international legal actions against the Ecuadorian State for the “systematic violation of human rights” and requested the departure of both Interior Minister Maria Paula Romo and Defense Minister Oswaldo Jarrin.
