Protests in Ecuador

The anti-Americanism of the Latin American left is costing poor people dearly:

Ecuadorean security forces have started removing roadblocks placed by indigenous groups protesting against free trade talks with the US.

The government sent in army units to restore order after declaring a state of emergency in five central provinces.

Demonstrators have been blocking roads since last week. They fear the deal being negotiated in Washington this week will damage their way of life.

The protests have cost the country millions of dollars in lost trade.
