Ecuador’s president Lenin Moreno is facing the largest challenge to his two years in power.
Indigenous groups are leading a national strike against austerity measures.
Violent protests began last week when Moreno removed 40-year old fuel subsidies, causing petrol prices to double.
Demonstrators stormed Congress in te4h capital Quito, but the president had moved the government to a city 400 kilometres away.
Fuel subsidies were removed as part of a $4.2 billion loan deal with the International Monetary Fund.
Is Moreno listening to the demonstrator’s demands?
