Peru's president-designate says protests "threaten" democracy

The massive mobilization was called by the National Single Central of Peasant Rounds of Peru (Cunarc), the General Confederation of Peruvian Workers (CGP), teachers' unions, indigenous movements and various groups.

The organizers estimate that around 30,000 people will participate in the third takeover of Lima to demand the resignation of President Boluarte, the closure of Congress, the advancement of general elections and the calling of a Constituent Assembly.

More than 13,000 people have traveled to Lima from various regions of Peru to participate in the mobilizations in Lima.

The mobilization is expected to start in the afternoon in the center of the Peruvian capital, for which the National Police announced that it will deploy around 24,000 police officers in various areas of Lima.

Marches and mobilizations are also expected in the cities of Cajamarca, Apurímac, Lambayeque, Ica, Huancayo, Tumbes, Piura, Chiclayo, among other cities.

On the eve of the third takeover of Lima, President Dina Boluarte pointed out that the mobilizations this Wednesday in the Peruvian capital constitute "a threat to democracy", alleging that you will not allow this right of Peruvians.

According to Boluarte, the mobilization in Lima represents a threat to democracy, the rule of law, and institutionality, adding that as president she will not allow or accept it.

Despite criminalizing the march in the city of Lima, the president-designate stated that the Executive will respect the peaceful protest, but emphasized that it will not allow acts of violence by the protesters.

Boluarte called on the Prosecutor's Office, the Ombudsman's Office and the State Attorney's Offices so that "they are accompanying during the march, so that we can guarantee that they are peaceful, that they do not violate the rights of others."

The third takeover of Lima promoted by social organizations in the south of the country, has its background in two other calls that were held in January and February of this year and that did not achieve their main objective: to get the head of state to resign his position and call new general elections.
