Ecuadorian Xenophobia

The October issue of Colombian Magazine Cambio runs a report on the rise of Anti-Colombian sentiment in Ecuador. Apparently, the Ecuadorian Xenophobia has been accentuated by the recent decision of the Colombian government to grant asylum of deposed President Lucio Gutierrez.

Ecuadorians feel, says Cambio, victims of a plot to involve them in the Colombian problem, specifically in the Plan Colombia. The countries share a lot of issues including guerrilla forces and drug trafficking.
