Peru citizens take to streets to remove Pedro Castillo

Thousands took to the streets of Lima to call for the resignation of President Pedro Castillo who is under six investigations for corruption. People marched on Saturday until riot police fired tear gas to stop them.
In his first 12 months in office, Castillo faced more than 50 cabinet changes, five fraud investigations, and two impeachment proceedings. Castillo calls those who oppose him “reactionaries” and “the enemies of people”. He took office in July 2021 and is serving a five-year term until 2026. He has denied all.
