Organizational work is advancing amid accusations by Lasso and certain ministers that the national strike protests were allegedly financed illegally.
Days ago, the leader of the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (CONAIE), Leonidas Iza, rejected the alleged link with drug trafficking and recalled that the mobilization was sustained thanks to the immense solidarity of the Ecuadorian people.
Leaders of the Council of Peoples and Evangelical Indigenous Organizations of Ecuador (Feine) and the National Confederation of Indigenous and Black Organizations (Fenocin), also organizers of the strike, made similar statements.
Iza accused Lasso of maintaining a discriminatory and criminalizing protest discourse and said that the president does not help the dialogue process with this attitude.
While this was happening, these organizations demanded that the ministers of the Interior, Patricio Carrillo, and of Defense, Luis Lara, resign from their posts and that the National Assembly initiate an impeachment trial against them for the repression during the national strike.
In a resolution approved this weekend, the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of the Ecuadorian Amazon (Confeniae) demanded the Government assume responsibility for the excessive use of force, which resulted in the death of five demonstrators, thousands of injured, arrests, persecution, and criminalization.
