Peru extends 30-day state of emergency due to protests

Demonstrations against President Dina Boluarte and for new elections persisted yesterday Sunday in Peru where those killed in the protests were honored and the government declared a state of emergency in more regions.

Boluarte's government extended the state of emergency for 30 days in Lima, Cusco, Callao and Puno to stop the protests, authorizing the military to intervene together with the police to protect public order.

The Government also extended the curfew in Puno, the epicenter of the protests.

The decision takes place when mobilizations were called from the south of Peru towards Lima starting today, Monday; an action that the authorities qualify as a "riot" against Boluarte.

Yesterday, Sunday, 99 stretches of roads remained blocked by demonstrators in 10 of Peru's 25 regions demanding the resignation of Boluarte, who assumed the presidency last December 7 after Congress dismissed Pedro Castillo following his failed coup d'état.

Protests against Peruvian President Dina Boluarte, which have already left 50 people dead, concentrated today in the country's capital.
