Peru: March against corruption in Lima, Pax Christi Peru was witness

 

Walter Powosino from our member organisation Pax Christi Peru was witness to a demonstration in Lima, Peru. He writes:

A new commitment to fight corruption, conducted thousands of people all over the country. In Lima the start was made. There was a lot of police presence. People heard the voice of protest against corruption. It was very heartening to see again mobilized people of the labor and trade union organisations; marching along with their political organizations. There were also a lot of simple people present, screaming their indignation in front of the palace of justice. But also expressing hope that this is a moment of test in order to regain the trust in the powers to administer justice.
