In Cusco, the arrival of several provincial delegations was reported, such as those of Quillabamba, La Convención, Calca and Urubamba, which marched through the streets and joined the strike that this department is carrying out this day.

Similarly, in that region there is a severe shortage of fuel due to the blockade of roads, in addition to a cessation of mining activities by various groups.

In this sense, the Ombudsman's Office indicated that 79 roads are blocked while it counted 24 provinces in which the mobilizations remain.

For their part, in the capital the protesters gathered in public squares such as Dos de Mayo and San Martín, as well as in the vicinity of public institutions such as the Congress of the Republic and the Government Palace.



The plenary session of the Peruvian Congress rejected this Wednesday with 54 votes in favor, 68 against and two abstentions, the project to advance the complementary general elections, which constitutes one of the fundamental claims of the protests.

Last Saturday, the death of citizen Víctor Santisteban was reported as a result of police brutality, when 58 deaths have been recorded since the demonstrations began on December 7.
