The mayor of Quito, Santiago Guarderas, reacted to the act for peace signed by the national government and the indigenous movements after 18 days of protests. This was achieved after dialogues and agreements for peaceful coexistence, public order and the development of Ecuador. The signature was made from the headquarters of the Ecuadorian Episcopal Conference, the body that led the mediation.

“From the first day of the strike, we have been committed to dialogue and peace. From each crisis we learn and it is an opportunity to improve. We are working day and night to keep the capital operational,” the mayor wrote on Twitter.

From that pledge, 85-octane gasoline will cost $2.40 per gallon (3.78 liters) and diesel $1.75, despite the indigenous movement demanding it be reduced at $2.10 and $1.50, respectively, similar prices to a year ago.

The final agreement assumes an additional reduction of 5 cents per gallon to the 10 cent reduction already announced by President Guillermo Lasso last Sunday evening.

Prior to this commitment, the government had already partially acceded to other demands of the indigenous movement, such as the repeal of Decree 95, which favored oil activity in the Amazon.

In exchange for stopping the protests, the government has promised to repeal the new state of emergency declared Wednesday in four provinces of the country where several episodes of violence and shortages of essential products such as fuel and oxygen have been concentrated. medical.
