In Ecuador, the prefect of Pichincha, Paola Pabon denounced once againpolitical persecution from the government of Lenin Moreno against her.

In an interview on Sunday, Pabon denounced that the Prosecutor’s office is receiving pressure from the government.

“They are being pressured by the government of Lenin Moreno, and for that reason, they are not acting under the law, but per political interests of the Executive,” she said.

Pabon was arrested for 72 days for supposedly having committed “rebellion” during last year’s protest. In October of 2019, thousands took to the streets to protest against the neoliberal policies of President Lenin Moreno.

1. Moreno has proven to be a massive disappointment...

He came in promising to continue the progressive policies of Correa (without, presumably, the latter's Trump-of-the-left personality), but all he's done is to take the country straight toward the center-right...and, although he isn't running again, he seems to be making sure that any leftist candidates are barred from the ballot, ensuring a further shift toward IMF-style austerity.

2. Ecuador's fascists had to have planned that betrayal well in advance. What he did was horrendous.

Following on the heels of so much progress with Correa, too.
