Responding to the #Forty4Ecuador proposal posted at FightBackBetter , Monica Palacios has committed to support and help organize this effort. The plan is to coordinate a series of events around the US and worldwide starting on March 4th (March Forth for Democracy in Ecuador!) and going through April 12, the day after the run off presidential election on April 11. The plan is to encourage activities throughout the 40 days to support the people of Ecuador and oppose US and its allies attempts to undermine the democratic and constitutional process.
Responding to an invitation to engage the effort, Monica Palacios states, “I really appreciate it all the time and effort that you are giving to maintain the rule of law and democracy in Ecuador. I am willing to work with you in whatever you need me to do.”
