Description

The hacienda is run like a baronial fief. The laws of the state are not applied in the latifundium without the tacit or formal consent of the large landowners. The authority of political or administrative officials is in fact subject to the authority of the landowner in his domain. The latter considers his latifundium to be outside the jurisdiction of the state and he disregards completely the civil rights of the people who live within his property. He collects excise taxes, grants monopolies, and imposes sanctions restricting the liberty of the laborers and their families.”


-Jose Carlos Mariategui


 
Peru’s long struggle for democracy continues with their current presidential election. A nation that has overcome a series of corrupt leaders, military coups and deadly Civil War within the last 30 years, will the election of Pedro Castillo, a former elementary school teacher and socialist, over the daughter of former Peruvian dictator Alberto Fujimori can be Peru’s moment to break free of their western economic shackles?


 
Will the far-right Keiko Fujimori be able to overturn the election using the Trump playbook citing baseless claims of electoral fraud?


With military support, will Fujimori be able to call for something that is all too common in Peru, a military coup.
