Ecuador, following the official announcement of the new economic measures, mainly the release of the subsidy on the prices of extra gasoline and diesel, established in Decree 883. The national transporters' union decided to call for a stoppage of its activities. Popular sectors strongly reject the rise of fuels and those treated with the IMF.

While the students and other organizations maintain the protests in the center of Quito and other cities in the country, the indigenous movements block the roads and gather to march towards the capital and join the great popular concentration. After almost 2 months after the mobilization still leaves consequences in society. Criminalized by the State, permanent wounded, deceased, and a historical memory that will never be forgotten.

Ecuador, tras el anuncio oficial de las nuevas medidas económicas, principalmente la liberación del subsidio a los precios de la gasolina extra y el diésel, establecido en el Decreto 883, el gremio nacional de transportistas decidió llamar al paro de sus actividades. Sectores populares rechazan enérgicamente la suba de los combustibles y los tratados con el FMI.

Mientras los estudiantes y otras organizaciones mantienen las protestas en el centro de Quito y otras ciudades del país, los movimientos indígenas bloquean las vías y se concentran para marchar hacia la capital y sumarse a la gran concentración popular. Después de casi 2 meses de la movilización aún deja secuelas en la sociedad. Criminalizados por el Estado, heridos permanentes, fallecidos y una memoria histórica que jamás será olvidada.
