The expectation and, above all, that the national government and the strike leaders will be present at a dialogue table remains, although some obstacles have to be overcome to make it happen within the framework of trust.

Leonidas Iza, president of the Confederation of Indigenous Peoples of Ecuador, has presented a number of conditions for establishing relations with the President of the Republic, Guillermo Lasso. Obviously, to start a dialogue, there are usually prerequisites. No one has lifted the state of emergency among others. Yesterday, for his part, government minister Francisco Jimenez said it was not possible.

Far from political fascination, both are correct. Dialogue is not possible if there are exceptions, but it exists because there is an association that hinders the normal development of Ecuadorians.

The government gave the first signal: it withdrew the police from the House of Culture, which was one of Konai’s demands. But it also has its own demands: lifting roadblocks and allowing Ecuadorians who did not take part in the strike to move freely and safely. But yesterday’s march wanted to enter the National Assembly.

Several organizations and unions are asking the parties to sit in dialogue. A ceasefire has also been called to end a strike that marked its eleventh day yesterday and the consequences of which are being felt. Many markets have supply shortages and the surrounding areas do not receive products, which has become way more expensive and can never return to standards before the strike. Long lines of people waiting to sell gas somewhere. Many find it difficult to get a job.

As time goes on, dialogue has become more necessary and urgent. Instability must be put aside, because impatience usually makes it successful. It is imperative that the parties determine the meeting place, time and procedure as soon as possible and that the solutions are long-term. The country deserves to live in more days of uncertainty and not.
