Unions, indigenous people hold first protest against Ecuador's Lasso


Quito, Aug 11 (EFE).- The United Front of Workers (FUT) and the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (Conaie) on Wednesday held the first protest against the government of conservative president Guillermo Lasso, who assumed power in May and inherited a country in crisis.The demonstration of the largest labor union in Ecuador, 80 days after the new president took office, counted on the determined presence of the indigenous organization, which has called on the president to discard the policies of his predecessor, Lenín Moreno.The march, which took place peacefully in Quito except for sporadic clashes between protesters and police, was called to demand the repeal of an executive decree inherited from Moreno that has caused a rise in fuel prices in recent months.

SHOT LIST: A PROTEST AGAINST THE HIGH COST OF BASIC GOODS AND THE MONTHLY INCREASE IN OIL PRICES IN QUITO; AND POLICE CLASH WITH DEMONSTRATORS DURING THE PROTEST, IN QUITO, ECUADOR.
