Video | The takeover of Lima: the protests in Peru in six moments


Peruvians joined a demonstration en masse that did not reach its goal and ended with a spectacular fire in a building in Lima

The deaths of more than 50 people in the protests that occurred a month ago have motivated Peruvians to take to the streets to protest, once again, against the country's president, Dina Boluarte.

In addition, many of the inhabitants of the poorest rural regions have vented their anger against the political elite for the inequality and rising prices they are suffering.

A demonstration that confronted Peruvians with the police and that is already considered the worst violence recorded in Peru in more than 20 years, for which the Government of Peru decided to declare a state of emergency.

In the video that accompanies the news you can see the key moments of the protests against the president of the country Dina Boluarte.

The people of Lima joined the cry of "Dina murderess, the people repudiate you."

Faced with the uproar that was taking place, some 11,000 police officers confronted the demonstrators with shotgun pellets and tear gas.

The president of the country, in a speech to the nation at night, accused them of creating chaos, and she stressed that it was not a peaceful protest.

“The violent events that occurred in December and January will not go unpunished,” she said.

In addition, she assured that the Government remained "firm" and criticized the protesters: "They want to create chaos to take power."

Added to the number of deaths is a man who died in clashes that also took place between the police and protesters in front of the Arequipa airport, in southern Peru.


The day ended with a fire in a historic building located in Plaza San Martín in Lima.

The house was empty when it caught fire and the causes that produced it are unknown.
