Ecuador lifts state of emergency

The announcement comes after a tentative dialogue was opened between the federal government and the indigenous peoples’ representatives.

“No commitments have been made, but the Indigenous Peoples’ Organization has decided to consult its grassroots to form a commission for this dialogue,” stated Virgilio Saquicela, President of the Ecuadorian Parliament.

Since the protests started on June 13, components of Ecuador have been paralyzed by roadblocks. The police have used tear gasoline to disperse protesters in a number of cities. According to the indigenous folks, two protesters had been killed and a couple of hundred had been injured.

Dissatisfaction is primarily based, amongst different issues, on rising dwelling prices.
