He asked lawmakers from the Pachakutik movement, Conaie’s political arm in the National Assembly (Parliament), to propose revoking the decree on the state of emergency, which has dictatorial overtones, according to Iza.

We welcome the points on which progress is being made, even if they are ridiculous, they will be of some use”, although “the fundamental questions, President of the Republic, you do not intend to resolve them”, declared Iza.

He ratified that the demonstration will have a national scope, will be indefinite until answers are given to the main demands and will take place in the territories of each community, although delegations from the provinces will travel to Quito.
