After 11 uninterrupted days of national strike, the government and the indigenous movement of Ecuador agreed this Sunday to revoke Decree 883, which eliminated the subsidy for extra gasoline and diesel.

A new resolution repealed the provision, which resulted in a massive popular rejection to President Lenín Moreno's measures.

National protests against the so-called package were thus terminated, as well as the measures in effect since last October 3, when the decree became effective and the demonstrations began, uniting the majority of Ecuadorian citizens.
