The Peruvian Ombudsman's Office said that they are deployed in different points of the city of Lima and also in the Central 105 of the Peruvian Police in order to monitor the development of the current demonstrations and guarantee the right to peaceful protest of the citizens.

"The people united will never be defeated", "Dina murderer, narco criminal", "The people repudiate the usurper Dina", are some of the slogans raised by the demonstrators, who are heading to the Palace of Justice.

Meanwhile, the National Coordinator of Human Rights of Peru (CNDDHH) from its Twitter account pointed out that last night at the door of the Alfonso Ugarte Police Station, located in downtown Lima, undercover police harassed journalists and lawyers of the human rights organization, who went to the police station to denounce detentions.

Similarly, the Women's sector of the New Peru Yesterday Movement recalled yesterday's mobilization. "Yesterday, we took to the streets to protest against the dictatorship of Dina Boluarte and her criminal coalition, against the Congress and for the memory of our murdered brothers and sisters".
