The Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador accepts the dialogue with the Government, but they ask that it be public

The Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (Conaie) issued a public statement to accept the dialogue proposed by the President of the Republic, Guillermo Lasso, for November 10, but requested that it be public so that there is transparency and true democratic participation.

This weekend the Expanded Council of indigenous peoples and nationalities met and decided, among other issues, to ratify their political will for dialogue so that the demands of the social sectors are heard and, above all, “obtain favorable responses that citizens longs ”.

In addition, there were five additional resolutions that were taken together with the leaders of the groups that make up the so-called Parliament of the Peoples: Unitary Front of Workers, National Union of Educators, Feine, Fenocin and others.

On the other hand, CONAIE ratified that in this dialogue with the Executive, they will insist on the six issues raised in their previous call:

Review of the price of fuels and repeal of the Executive Decrees that release the price of the same.

Moratorium, renegotiation of debts and reduction of interest rates in the financial system.

Guarantee support prices and public purchases of peasant products.

Public policies agreed with social sectors and the indigenous movement to generate decent employment and stop job insecurity.

Moratorium on the expansion of the oil extraction frontier, auditing of the socio-environmental and ethnic impacts of the projects in execution, not of the open-pit mining projects and the execution of mega-mining projects.

Full guarantee of compliance and validity of collective rights, prior binding consultation, formalization and protection of territory and self-determination.

To conclude, the indigenous movement asks the President of the Republic, Guillermo Lasso, to immediately respond to the accusations of the Pandora Papers case and its alleged ties to tax havens before the National Assembly.
