Clashes amid protests against Peru’s president

Thousands of demonstrators continue to put pressure on the new Peruvian President Dina Boluarte. The country’s capital was the scene of protests again on Tuesday, and citizens from different regions of the territory have yet to arrive in Lima to demand the president’s resignation.

During the marches, insults and objects were thrown at journalists, and there were clashes with the security forces, who used tear gas.

Police have said there have been cuts at 81 points affecting 19 national highways. Boluarte has announced that law enforcement will take them down. He also offers to discuss the protesters’ social demands, but not the policies, which he says are “unenforceable by the executive.”

The authorities have canceled all sporting events between January 17 and 23 due to the situation in the country, including the soccer league that started this week. So far, the protests have resulted in fifty deaths
