Police blocked the path of thousands of protesters marching to the presidential palace in the Ecuadorian capital Quito on Thursday. The march was aimed at Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno whose economic policies have led to an increase in utility prices, turning against his mentor, former President Rafael Correa. «We see here people from all around the country, not only those affiliated with... Еще a political party,» said Anabel Hermosa, Quito City counselor. «This protest collects the voice of those Ecuadorians who recently lost their jobs, the artisans, the fishermen whose economic situation has been affected,» she added. Moreno's popularity took a rapid decline after parting ways with his predecessor, reversing several of his landmark economic policies.
