Rallies have spread to all the major cities in Peru

As the situation in Peru continues to remain tense, Archbishop Carlos Castillo Mattasoglio of Lima said the Catholic Church has launched numerous appeals for dialogue and is asking authorities to take into account the legitimate demands of the poor.

The country has been wracked by massive demonstrations against incumbent President Dina Boluarte and congressmen that have left at least 48 people dead over the past month.

The demonstrators are demanding the resignation of all state offices and the calling of new elections after the ousting and arrest of President-elect Pedro Castillo in December.

Notwithstanding repression of the anti-government protests has been extremely harsh, rallies have spread to all the major cities in Peru and last Thursday also erupted in the tourist area of Cusco.
