Peru’s Congress Committed a Coup. Now, Peruvians are Taking their Country Back

On local time November the 9th, Peru’s Congress unconstitutionally deposed President Vizcarra, and President of Congress Manuel Merino took charge. Protests erupted all around the country, which were responded with brutality by police. Five days and three victims later, his coup hangs in the balance as many of the country’s top politicians call for his resignation.
