Progress in Ecuador

Ecuador Tops the List For Social Justice

The renowned Latinbarometer annual survey of Latin America has once again underlined strong support for the policies of the government of Rafael Correa. The poll surveys 20,000 people in 18 countries, with Ecuador coming top or near top in a number of key measures including:

  • Ecuadorians are the most likely to think that its government acts on behalf of all the people.  In 2006, the year before President Correa came to office, just 11% of Ecuadorians believed their government did so. By 2015, this has reached 56%, almost double the average for Latin America.
  • Ecuador came first in the percentage of people believing that their nation’s distribution of wealth is fair. In 2007, only 22% of Ecuadorians believed wealth distribution was fair. By 2015, it has more than double to 49%. Though a huge improvement and the highest in the continent, President  Correa said this shows the need to continue laws to make the wealthiest pay more taxes to create a more just country.

Ecuador has the third highest levels of support for democracy in the region. Before Correa was elected just 22% expressed support for their democracy but this has now soared to 71%. Ecuador came has the second highest levels of electoral participation, due to large increases that have occurred under the Correa government and its citizens are the second most satisfied with their democracy in the continent.

Failure of government and employers to endure decent sick pay will lead to many more deaths. Trade Unions have set the standard by demanding sick pay and health and safety over the decades and particularly during this pandemic.

EU Is still trying to rule Britain, Barnier tries demanding EU vessels have access to British waters otherwise there will be exclusion from EU markets; that there is a risk of a no deal. We must have sovereign rights over our fishing grounds.

EU fishing company bosses talk about winning a game with respect to Britain's fishing waters; but the struggle over fishing rights is serious. Ask Venezuelans if defence of sovereignty is a game, or Palestinians whether gaining it is mere play.

The EU has realised that Brexit is no game; it is the serious desire of the British population. Countries are panicking about the prospect of no-deal, as it will hurt economies in ways they refused to accept. Britain has the upper hand. Get Brexit done!
