Reprimen a manifestantes en una nueva jornada de protestas contra Boluarte en Lima

The Peruvian Police fired pellets at the bodies of the protesters who arrived from Puno, two months after the Juliaca massacre.

A new group of protesters from the Peruvian city of Puno arrived this Thursday in the country’s capital, Lima, to continue the protests against the government of Dina Boluarte and demand justice for the victims of the Juliaca massacre.

Both photos and videos posted on social networks show the arrival of groups of people in Lima. However, when the protesters were passing through the Puente Piedra district, they were intercepted by the Peruvian National Police (PNP), which began to fire tear gas at them.

Through audiovisual materials, it can be seen how the PNP fires tear gas grenades at the protesters’ bodies at close range. According to the Unified National Fighting Committee of Peru, it was a “brutal repression” against the Puno delegation.

Some unions from the south of the Andean nation are already in Lima and their objective is to reach the Congress of the Republic, as part of their request to close Parliament, call for a Constituent Assembly and early elections.

Since last December 7, when Pedro Castillo was dismissed by Congress after his attempt to close the legislative body, multiple protests have been unleashed against Boluarte, who is being demanded to resign to force early elections.

Juliaca massacre

This Thursday they have also mobilized in Peru because it is two months since the Juliaca massacrea city in Puno where 22 people (21 civilians and one PNP) died after police repression, which also left a high number of victims.

The next day, January 10, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights urged the Peruvian state to investigate the deaths during the protests.

“We are very concerned about the increase in violence in Peru, which on Monday, January 9, lived one of the days deadliest since the riots began in early December,” the spokeswoman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Marta Hurtado, commented at the time.
