PERU TURNS LEFT

After several days of tension and caution, today we can safely say the irreversible trend in favour of the presidential candidate, Pedro Castillo, who prevailed against the daughter of the dictator Alberto Fujimori, Keiko Fujimori. Who has made a millionaire campaign based on the anti-communist discourse, a discourse that is a copy and copy of the right in Latin America, which argues "The dangers" of communism? The same people who warn of this danger are those who have stained the history of Latin American countries with blood, corruption and tyranny, the same ones who today speak of democracy with the most absolute cynicism.

Beyond any analysis on the disastrous meaning of the Fujimori for Peru, what we will focus on today is Pedro Castillo, who is almost in the final stretch with a difference of 80,000 votes in favour, as the new president from Peru.

* Who is Pedro Castillo? *

Popularly known as _ "The Professor" _, Castillo, 51 years old, grew up in the bosom of an enslaved family, in a town that bears the name of Puña in Tacabamba, province of Chota, located in the department of Cajamarca.

He is a primary school teacher in the Andean region of Cajamarca, where he is from, and he gained notoriety as of 2017 when he led a large national strike of teachers, which halted classes for three months, to demand better salaries and eliminate evaluations at the teacher job performance.

* The future of Peru *


Castillo's victory in the elections has meant a triumph for the peoples of Latin America who have been overwhelmed by the policies of neoliberalism in the last 30 years. As well as it is of great significance for Peru since it is the first leftist candidate to become president of Peru. The government plan presented by Castillo highlights a high intention to achieve social justice and achieve gender equality in the territory. Likewise, promote a change in the Peruvian Constitution, motivate the industrialization of the country, and promote new economic models for small entrepreneurs and invisible sectors.

The peoples of Latin America see with hope these steps that have been taken in Peru, which are expected to mean the construction of a project, and an identity of the peoples that serves as an alternative to the capitalist debacle.
