Peru: Anti-govt protests demanding Boluarte's resignation resume in Lima

Protests and clashes renewed between the police and demonstrators who demanded the resignation of the country's president, Dina Boluarte, in the Peruvian capital, Lima on Monday.

Footage shows riot police throwing tear gas at protesters and protesters throwing objects at police cars.

"We are in a political social crisis, that murderous lady, Dina Boluarte has to resign because we are going to continue with our fights until the last consequences," said Felipe Mamani, a Protester.

Deadly protests have been ongoing across Peru after former President Pedro Castillo was impeached over corruption allegations, despite a last-ditch bid to dissolve Congress.

His vice president Dina Boluarte was sworn in as the country's first female president. Boluarte moved to bring forward elections by April 2024, but Castillo's backers view her rise to power as illegitimate.

Peruvian President Dina Boluarte stressed that she would not offer her resignation during a televised address last Saturday, January 14.

“Some voices that come out of the violent and radical ask for my resignation, stirring up the population, to chaos, disorder, and destruction. To them, I say responsibly: I am not going to resign. My commitment is with Peru and not with that tiny group that is making the country bleed,” the embattled President said.
