Instead of attacking those who protest, Lasso should attend to the demands of indigenous communities, workers, women and civil society, Corbyn commented through the social network Twitter.

The MP, who led British Labour between 2015 and 2020, accompanied the comment with a photograph showing a woman holding a banner with the caption: “I’d rather die fighting than die hungry: the struggle is of the people, the hunger of Lasso’s government”.

The national strike in Ecuador against the high cost of living and insecurity entered its fifteenth day on Monday.

According to Prensa Latina reported from Quito, the day is passing in an atmosphere of tranquility in most of the country, after the repeal the day before of the state of emergency and the beginning of a rapprochement between the government and the indigenous movement.

The leaders of the protest pointed out that the Executive adopted some provisions related to the popular demands contained in the 10-item agenda, such as the cancellation of debts of up to three thousand dollars, the budget for intercultural education and the emergency decree in the Public Health system.

They stressed, however, that there are still pending topics related to fuel prices, illegal mining, credits and privatization of strategic sectors.
