Outraged by State terrorism, citizens set fire to the judicial headquarters and a police station in the Puno region.

On Wednesday, the Carabaya Health Network confirmed the death of a 35-year-old woman from a gunshot wound to the head.


Peruvian Workers Call for a National Strike Against Boluarte

This took place during the protests against President Dina Boluarte in the city of Macusani, in the Puno region, where police snipers recorded themselves shooting at citizens.

The most recent victim of State terrorism was Sonia Aguilar Quispe, who was transported to the San Martin de Porres Hospital. Another citizen identified as Salomon Valenzuela was taken to the hospital, where he remains with a "reserved prognosis" due to open chest trauma.

The military and the police have caused the death of 52 people since Dec. 7, 2022, when Congress dismissed Pedro Castillo and appointed his vice president as President of the Republic.

The tweet reads, "Macusani, Puno. The police record themselves moments before shooting from a window in Carabaya. A sniper would have caused the death of 35-year-old Sonia and seriously injured another citizen who is in ICU. This It is irrefutable proof of the Carabaya massacre."

On Wednesday afternoon and evening, the Macusani district was the scene of strong protests. Outraged by the repression that the Boluarte regime has allowed, the citizens set fire to the judicial headquarters and a police station.

Despite the brutal repression they have experienced in the last month, thousands of Peruvians continue to head towards Lima to participate in "The March of the Four Nations" (La Marcha de los Cuatro Suyos).

This symbolic act seeks the resignation of Boluarte, the dissolution of Congress, the immediate call for general elections, and holding a Constituent Assembly.

To support these citizen demands, the General Confederation of Workers of Peru (CGTP) and the National Assembly of the Peoples (ANP) called a national strike this Thursday. Meanwhile, Boluarte maintains that she will not resign from office.
