Ecuadoreans Want Apology to Venez

Quito, Mar 18 (Prensa Latina) The Pachakutik indigenous movement urged the
Ecuadorean government to apologize for an attempt by Congress leader
Wilfredo Lucero to link Venezuela to protests in Ecuador.

Pachakutik Coordinator Gilberto Talahua denied any involvement of Caracas
and President Hugo Chavez in financing indigenous mobilizations against the
free trade agreement with the US.

Lucero´s remarks are "irresponsible and unfounded," stressed Talahua.

He said protests against the FTA and for the cancellation of operations of
US oil firm Oxy, as well as the convening of a Constituent Assembly have
been financed by local indigenous communities.

"Wilfrido Lucero´s clumsy remarks internationalize an issue of strict
internal jurisdiction," said Talahua, who asked the Executive to apologize
to "brother country" Venezuela.
