Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.2

Peruvians protesting against the current administration have encountered extreme political violence under President Dina Boluarte, former vice-president and successor to former president Pedro Castillo.  Castillo was arrested on rebellion charges and removed from office after his attempt to dissolve congress and avoid a third impeachment trial.  “Let there be no more deaths, let his be the last” Lisbeth Candia said of Remo Candia, her brother who was fatally shot by Peruvian security forces for protesting against the government.
