Situation About Peru Now

Unfortunately, last December 7th, our past-president Pedro Castillo, decided to close the parliament from one moment to another, due to the request for a vacancy that was made due to all the corruption that was in his government; the parliament made an urgent vote and was immediately vacated.  The judiciary decided to put him in pretrial detention

These events unleashed a series of conflicts among the followers of Pedro Castillo, especially since was sworn in as the country’s new president, Dina Boluarte, who was his vice-president.

The people demand that Castillo be released from prison and returned to the government palace and that a new constitution be drawn up
