Castle, the pinata
they will hit him with a stick
On the last day of the year, the sale of piñatas with the image of today’s imprisoned former president Pedro Castillo dressed in a striped suit swept the different markets of the capital. After a year of political crisis and social upheaval, there are many Peruvians who want to “burn” the bad vibes in the streets, while the misnamed “president of the people” is serving 18-month preventive detention in the Diroes.
Who did celebrate through her social networks having been personified in these piñatas was Congresswoman Patricia Chirinos, who even encouraged herself to buy one for her home. Although, truth be told, several of her colleagues would do a good job. With so much unpresentable that there is in Parliament, we would have plenty of piñatas to celebrate the end of the year, right?
The mayor of San Martín de Porres, Julio Chávez, did not want to leave office without first becoming a publicherry with a video in which he only shows the good face of the district. Making a fool of him, his Popular Action party added: “We will know them through his works.” And yes then. If not, ask the residents who, especially in this last stretch of the mayoral administration, have to endure the invasion of informal buses, broken tracks and countless mountains of garbage in their streets. There is no doubt… by their works we will know them.
No to protest with violence
From Cusco, President Dina Boluarte urged those who threaten to block the roads again and mobilize in protests, starting on January 4, to reflect on the damage they cause to the economic development of their regions. She added that behind these demonstrations there would be characters linked to Movadef and prisoners for terrorism. Like this or clearer?
