In Ecuador, a national strike paralyzed parts of the country Wednesday as indigenous groups, students, labor unions and others continue their massive anti-austerity protests.
Protester: “We do not want President Moreno’s economic measures. We do not want him as president. All of those who are in favor of those measures are against the people.”
The protests began after Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno ended a decades-old fuel subsidy program last week as part of a so-called reform plan imposed by the International Monetary Fund, after Ecuador took a $4.2 billion loan from the IMF earlier this year.
