Lenín Moreno declared martial law and sent the army into Quito. But the snipers on rooftops who have killed at least five people and wounded at least 800 are not soldiers, but police.

Earlier in the week there was a clash between soldiers and cops, the former trying to restrain the latters' violence. An isolated incident or Moreno's authority crumbling? And if it crumbles, will there be foreign intervention to keep it from collapsing?

Today I applaud Ecuador’s Indigenous communities, who led a grassroots movement, stood up to government repression, and blocked the austerity agenda of the International Monetary Fund.

Economic elites keep pushing austerity all over the world, making life unbearable for working people in so many countries. The United States should stop supporting these policies.
