Thousands of people in Peru took to the streets demanding the resignation of incumbent President Pedro Castillo. Reuters writes about this.

As specified, protest marches were held not only in the capital of Lima, but also in other cities of the South American country.

The government of the head of state with leftist views is under investigation on charges in corruption.

In the capital, protesters marched with national flags and anti-government slogans to the Congress building.

Police in helmets and with shields in their hands tried to disperse the crowd, using tear gas. There have been no reports of injuries yet.

The President called the people who took to the streets “reactionaries” and “enemies of the people”.

Why there are protests in Peru

Pedro Castillo was elected in July last year, during this period there were two attempts to declare impeach him.

For the first time, the impeachment procedure was proposed by former presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori in November 2021. She, in particular, argued that Castillo was “morally unfit for office.” However, the impeachment failed: 76 members of Congress voted against the trial, 46 voted in favor, and four more abstained.

The Peruvian opposition made another attempt in March of this year, but it also turned out to be unsuccessful.

< p> After that, since March, 28th, in Peru mass protests against the operating government have begun. People are unhappy with inflation, rising fuel and fertilizer prices, and economic stagnation after the Covid-19 pandemic.

In April, the country went through a national general strike when bus drivers blocked traffic throughout the state.

In October, the country's prosecutor general filed a constitutional lawsuit against Castillo, which could lead to his resignation.

After that, three more girls were killed in Iran. 16-year-old video blogger Sarina Esmailzade died from blows to the head with batons. 17-year-old Nika Shakarami had injuries in the head area. 17-year-old Arnika Guy Magami was also repeatedly hit on the head with truncheons. The girl fell into a coma, and after 10 days the doctors pronounced her dead.
