Residents of Ecuador's port city of Guayaquil gathered for a 'White March' on Wednesday to call for peace in the Andean country currently wracked by violent protests.

Earlier on Wednesday, authorities clashed with protesters in Guayaquil in what has turned into Latin America's latest flare-up over unpopular structural reforms. Moreno has support from the business leaders and the military appears to remain loyal. But his popularity is less than half of what it was two years ago and Ecuadoreans are aware that indigenous protests helped bring down three presidents in recent decades.
