Demonstrations continue in Peru against President Dina Boluarte

Starting in the morning, thousands of people mobilized peacefully from the city of San Juan de Lurigancho and various points on the outskirts of Lima (capital) to the center of said city, when they collided with police units and were attacked.

Videos disseminated through social networks show uniformed and motorized men on Abancay avenue firing at protesters, who are also demanding the closure of Congress, the early elections, the call for a constituent assembly and the release of former President Pedro Castillo.

The agents used tear gas canisters. Several injuries are reported, as corroborated by images that show traces of blood from protesters who were taken to emergency services.

During this day, the demonstrators also rejected the decision of the Peruvian Congress the day before, when after a long debate it rejected a project to advance elections for October of this year.

This Saturday, the bodies of two community members who died there as a result of the repression perpetrated there on January 20 by the security forces were found at the facilities of the Anubi mining company, in the department of Apurímac.

Santos Rolando Hianquelagos and Wilman Chagua Oviedo came from the Chalhuahuacho area, in that department, and had been reported missing since that date.

In addition to Lima and the department of Puno, where demonstrations take place every day, mobilizations were also reported this Saturday in Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios department, in the southeast of the country.

There the demonstrators mobilized to the residence of the regional governor, Luis Otsuka, whom they urged not to meet with the national authorities and to represent the people, and he shot them.

For its part, the General Central of Workers of Peru called for mobilizations next Tuesday in the department of Arequipa, as well as in Puno and the cities of Andahuaylas and Abancay, located in Apurímac.

Until 4:00 p.m. local time this Saturday, 82 points with interrupted traffic were reported in nine regions of the country and 15 national roads affected by the blockades carried out by the protesters, according to information provided by the Superintendency of Land Transportation of People (Sutran).
