Ecuador declares the end of protests

Ecuador's government and indigenous people agreed to put an end to the protests that plunged the country into one of the greatest crises in recent decades.

After repealing decree 883 - which would have ended fuel subsidies - the government decided to establish a mixed commission.

The commission will be made up of nine indigenous representatives and six government representatives, and will be mediated by the U.N. and the Church.

Under these conditions, on Sunday, Oct. 13 both parties promised to negotiate a new package of economic measures, which will replace the one that started the revolts.

Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno then announced the restoration of peace and normality throughout the country.

He assured that, with this new agreement, both the riots and the supposed coup instigated by Nicolás Maduro and former President Rafael Correa were stymied.
