Demonstrators clash with the riot police in Quito, on August 13, 2015, during a strike organized by opposition indigenous groups and unions. Demonstrators took to the streets around Ecuador on Thursday to protest against President Rafael Correa's moves to seek a fourth term, but the leftist leader declared that plans for a paralyzing general strike had failed. Indigenous protesters, who have been particularly vocal critics of Correa, blocked roads in six of Ecuador's 24 provinces, including the Pan-American Highway to Peru, officials said.
