In Peru, protests resume against the backdrop of the Boluarte regime's 'authoritarian drift'

January 11, 2023

In the south of the country, various organizations have called for an indefinite strike and protesters are threatening to march on Lima, while the repression continues.

Yunni Milan Anahui and his mother were going to the market in the commercial center of Juliaca, in the south of Peru, on Friday, January 6. On the way, a bullet perforated his intestine. The 29-year-old man is in intensive care waiting for surgery. Mr. Anahui is one of the latest victims of the police violence that has accompanied the anti-government protests in Peru, which began in the wake of the fall of President Pedro Castillo on December 7, 2022, and his replacement by Vice President Dina Boluarte.
