    More than 60 dead

    This weekend, coinciding with Boluarte’s 100 days in power, thousands of people participated in a March in Lima to demand the resignation of the president, the closure of Congress, early elections and a constitutional reform. Although the mobilization was peaceful, the National Police repressed the protesters.

    According to the pollster CPI Reserach, Boluarte has a disapproval level of 76% among citizens, while more than half of Peruvians (51%) believe that Congress carried out a coup against Castillo.
