The more we look into the political realm, the easier it is to become disillusioned.
We often see powerful interests influencing leaders to make decisions that negatively affect our lives, if not our actual chances of survival. And whether these leaders understand the issue or not (which isn't always guaranteed), we may find that we don't have many options to address these decisions.
But sometimes, we come across stories that give us a little hope that justice can be served. And one case from Ecuador serves as a pleasant surprise for the cynical.
