MASSIVE Protests Against Communist President as Inflation Surges and Food Shortages Hit Peru — Protesters Hurl Rocks at Police Buses, Loot Milk Truck

TENS OF THOUSANDS took to the streets to protest Communist President Pedro Castillo as inflation soars and food shortages hit Peru.

Residents in Barrio Chino looted a milk truck this week.

The people hurled rocks at police buses.

The country declared a state of emergency.

A state of emergency was declared as farm workers and truckers protested increasing fuel and fertilizer prices.
Times Now News reported:

Peru on Thursday declared a one-month state of emergency on all its highways in a bid to clear road blocks set up by truckers protesting against price increases. The measure allows for the army to be deployed to clear the blockades, while also suspending certain constitutional rights such as freedom of movement and assembly.

The decree, published in the official newspaper, said “the police will keep control of internal order, with help from the armed forces.” Hundreds of truckers and farm workers have been blocking roads throughout the country since Monday to protest rising fuel and fertilizer prices.

Clashes between protesters and police in Ica some 300 kilometers (185 miles) south of Lima left one farm worker dead and 15 people injured, mostly police officers. Tensions had been building all week with President Pedro Castillo’s imposition of a 24-hour curfew in Lima on Tuesday backfiring and having to be called off six hours early.
