Ecuador’s Moreno Orders Military-Backed Curfew Starting in Quito As Protests Continue

Ecuador announced a curfew in the capital, Quito, Saturday, October 12, after protests continued over austerity measures, which has rocked the Andean nation.

An indigenous group in Ecuador that has led protests for more than a week against a law that ended fuel subsidies said on Saturday it has accepted direct talks with President Lenin Moreno, the first sign of a possible breakthrough in the dispute.

The highland capital of Quito was rocked by a 10th day of clashes over Moreno’s austerity plan, with the office of Ecuador’s comptroller set on fire and access roads to Quito’s airport blocked.

TV channel Teleamazonas showed images of its own offices in flames and said its employees were unharmed.

In a televised message to the South American country of 17 million people, Moreno thanked indigenous leaders for agreeing to talks but did not comment on whether he would repeal the law.
