The U.N. Representative in Ecuador Arnaud Peral informed that the new decree will be drawn up by organizations of the Indigenous movement and the government.Full Story
Indigenous organizations' conditions to stop protests are: derogation of Decree 883, dismissal of Ministers of Defense and Interior.
The professors argue that any "option" against it fails either by mistakes from within but "mostly due to criminal economic blockades coming from the world's superpower."
Ecuadorean government lifted the military curfew partially in some parts of the capital city Quito while protesters are waiting for talks between the president and Indigenous groups.
The statement came in response to President Lenin Moreno's decision to declare a curfew and deploying the military in the capital Quito.
Ecuador's president, Lenin Moreno says he's handing over all security control to the military for the next 24 hours, or until further notice.
In Ecuador, news channel teleSUR has been taken off the air for cable and satellite subscribers.
Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno announced Saturday that starting at 3:00 p.m. local time, the city of Quito was being "militarized" and put under curfew.
The Indigenous organization rejected actions carried out by masked individuals who ransacked the State Comptroller building.
For the first time in the history of the Republic of Ecuador, the government headquarters was transferred from Quito, the capital city, to Guayaquil on October 7.
President Lenin Moreno made the decision amid growing protests against the policy package implemented to secure an International Monetary Fund (IMF) loan.
The decision also happened a week after Moreno declared a State of Exception, a legal move which allows the government to restrict civil and political rights.
Closure of alternative media, detention of hundreds of people and other measures to halt citizen protest, however, would appear to have had no real effect.
Through their cell phones, which has become the civilian tool to break the information fence set up by the mainstream media, Ecuadorians report that more and more cities are actively joining a national strike which demands real political changes.
"No place to hide" was the cry that people chanted in tacit allusion to the change of the government headquarters towards Guayaquil, a city-port traditionally controlled by right-wing politicians.
