There's been a very real slide towards authoritarian rule in Latin America. The neoliberal project is back on the cards, but it's authoritarian in nature because people don't want it. When people have a chance to vote in favor or against the neoliberal project - they've clearly voted against it... In order to counter that, the right with this neoliberal project has tried to subvert the course of democracy - in Brazil they barred Lula from running, in Bolivia they're trying to block the most popular party from running, and in Ecuador you're seeing a similar situation.

Policy analyst Guillaume Long examines the political exile of former Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa, and current president Lenin Moreno's broader of disarming of progressive popular will, democratic rule and national sovereignty in Ecuador - in service of maintaining neoliberal hegemony and global financial institutions.
