Event

Numerous unions, including the FUT labor union and the main indigenous organization CONAIE, have called for nationwide protests on Monday, May 25, against economic measures recently implemented in response to the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The demonstrations are scheduled to begin in all major cities from 09:00 (local time), although organizers insist that they will comply with COVID-19 related health regulations. The unions argue that measures such as the "Humanitarian Support Law" will generate mass redundancies and reduce wages.

Associated protests are also likely to be held in the coming days. A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected near demonstration sites.

Advice

Individuals in Ecuador are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions near protest sites, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
