Thousands march in Quito after day of Ecuador protest violence

Thousands of indigenous protesters held a march through Ecuador's capital, Quito, on Wednesday to demand that President Guillermo Lasso address price rises that have ignited 10 days of demonstrations across the country. "Everything is expensive, we can't take it anymore," said Jose Guaraca, who joined the protest after traveling to the capital in a truck. Protesters are demanding a price cut of gasoline, the setting of a minimum price for agricultural products and a halt to expanding oil and mining.
