Description

Only 5 months ago the ascendancy of Pedro Castillo from primary school teacher to president of Peru was seen as a victory for the poor and working class and a sign of a new rising Pink Tide in Latin America. Less than a year in office Castillo is facing challenges from the far-right opposition party calling for his impeachment, as well turmoil from within Castillo’s own Peru Libre socialist party that until the last minute was in support of Castillo’s ouster from office.


 
Peru, a country that has seen 4 presidents in the last 3 years has a long sordid history of corrupt leaders and congressional governments. In less than six months Castillo’s approval rating has dropped to its lowest point yet at a mere 25%. However, while many are unhappy with the young administration of Castillo, there is still a large contingent that want to see Castillo make good on his campaign promises and avoid giving power to what the majority of Peruvian citizens feel is a far more corrupt congress.


 
Will the reign of Pedro Castillo end like his predecessors in scandal and impeachment? Is the far right and oligarchic class too powerful for Castillo and the Peru Libre socialist party of overcome? Is there validity in Castillo’s claims that his poor lower-class campesino background is the impetus for his attempted ouster? We’ll ask these questions and more. This is Revolution.
