Since the beginning of the mobilizations called by the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (CONAIE), the mobilizations have experienced a record of extreme violence. Yet moments have emerged on social media that reveal the other side of the protests.

One of the videos that has gone viral recently is of a child walking through the streets surrounded by members of the armed forces. In the clip, it was possible to observe how the minor feels admiration for them and greets them with their touching innocence.

The little boy is accompanied by his mother who wears the flag of Ecuador hanging from her back as a cape. Ultimately, this captured fact was widely shared on social media.

Other videos have also shown how people who are part of the mobilizations share food with soldiers and police, amid the scene of violence in the country.

Likewise, other images recorded how pieces of bread are offered to men in uniform under the slogan: “they are also human beings and Ecuadorians”.

Other content that has gone viral on the networks, the reunion of a soldier with his mother in full mobilization. As she took to the highways with the demonstrators, he was in the ranks of law enforcement.

However, the present family affection managed to register the smiles and hugs the two gave each other. The young man in uniform wore camouflage clothing, while the lady wore her native and peasant clothes from the moor.

Another factor that broke with the context of violence raging in Ecuador was the rapprochement between demonstrators and soldiers, who managed to dialogue to avoid clashes.
