PERU – Peru is now in a state of emergency, granting police special powers and limiting freedoms.

It also limits the right to assembly, after a week of fiery protests left at least eight dead.

The protests were sparked by the ousting of former President Pedro Castillo on December 7 in an impeachment vote.

Castillo, a leftist elected in 2021, was arrested after illegally trying to dissolve the Andean nation’s congress.

Castillo’s former vice president, Dina Boluarte was sworn into office after his removal.

Her presidency has divided other Latin American leaders.
