The political map of Latin America is in constant motion. And in the streets of each country, the social, health and economic situation has been directly affected by the handling of the Covid-19 Pandemic by different governments. In PERU, after the historic election of April 11, the people are weeks away from perhaps being able to twist the political and economic course established since the time of Alberto Fujimori. There will be a second-round between (the former president’s daughter) Keiko Fujimori, who has promised to pardon her own father if he wins, and the surprise winner at the polls, the teacher and union leader Pedro Castillo.
From the city of Lima Sebastián Sarapura (GIEPTALC-UNILA), delves into the most salient of Peruvian news. From Caracas, VENEZUELA, the prestigious intellectual María Fernanda BARRETO (RedH), helps us understand the current situation of a country where, despite the global scourge of the Pandemic, an economic blockade persists that is inhumane from every point of view. In addition, the increasing conflict on the border with Colombia, plus the role of the United States and possible strategies in the face of the collapse of the Guaidó plan.
