Major banana exporter Ecuador has stated its opposition to the new US-EU trade pact. The US and the EU may have ended their quarrel over bananas, but not everyone's happy.

However, given the enormous clout the US and the EU have in global trade, it remains to be seen whether the protests will have any effect.
