Over the last week, the citizens have blocked off this bridge four times using stones, tires, and metal structures.
On Tuesday, the indigenous peoples, workers and educators of the Puno region again blocked the bridge between Peru and Bolivia in rejection of the attacks suffered by Aymara women on July 19 during the 'National March'.
“This government violates our rights and massacred our brothers who traveled to Lima for the national march. We repudiate these acts of violence and demand Boluarte's resignation,” a protester told the newspaper La Republica.
"The National Unitary Coordination of Struggle of Peru (CNULP) announced peaceful mobilizations throughout the country and invited citizens to join them," the Wayka community newspaper reported.
"Until they all go" is one of the slogans that Peruvians will use to demonstrate against Boluarte and Congress for the next week.
