Finally, the notification ended with the slogan that the government has carried since the beginning of the mobilizations last Monday, June 13: “Ecuador wants peace”.
The Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (CONAIE) tweeted about demands and guarantees so that there can be an effective dialogue with the national government.
“While our people are massacred in the streets, we cannot dialogue,” begins the publication issued by the body representing the indigenous movement, which asks the authorities for the following points:
- Immediate cessation of actions of repression and criminalization.
- Repeal of the state of emergency and guarantees not to impose new decrees in the current framework of the National Strike.
- Cease the attack and respect humanitarian shelter areas.
- That the whole agenda be put on the table and that there are no “unachievable” points for the government, but rather efforts to respond to the clamor of the citizens.
