Ecuador Unrest

In October 2020, Ecuador had the worst unrest in more than a decade. Indigenous movement and differents social organizations paralyzed the country for more than a week. Protesters are angry over President Lenin Moreno's decision to cut decades-old fuel subsidies and implement tax and labor reforms.
At least nine people have been killed by the police and hundreds wounded. More than 700 people have also been arrested.
