    Ecuador protests: Government moves out of capital as violent demonstrations escalate

    Won't be long before the usual bunch of muppets are along to blame the US.

    Ecuador’s president has moved the country’s government out of Quito, the nation’s capital, following days of violent protests.

    Lenin Moreno is struggling to control unrest which began after he scrapped popular fuel price grants six days ago. Demonstrations, road blockades, looting and rumours of food scarcity have followed.

    Some protesters clashed with police officers, as the country was plunged further into one of its worse political crises in years. Around 570 people have been detained and the government has imposed a 60-day long state of emergency.


    Unions, students and indigenous groups have joined the protests in recent days. Authorities say around 59 police officers were hurt, a dozen police cars destroyed and a local government building attacked.


    “Not even jail will stop the Ecuadorean people’s struggle,” said Nelson Erazo, head of the Popular Front, an organisation which includes unions and social movements.
