by Jane Rosenstein and Javier Jara Cruz
On Sunday, June 6, 2021 an important election for the President of Peru will be held.
It is estimated that 65% of the voters will turn out.
Pedro Castillo, a farmer and a school teacher of literature who frequently wears a wide brimmed straw hat is a candidate with a special message
“Equality and Rights for all People without Corruption.” He wants to change the constitution to protect the rights of people. He was rather unknown until he led a 80 day teacher strike four years ago to demand more pay and the repeal of an unpoplular evualation of teachers’ performances.
Peru is an important country because sales of its minerals : copper, gold, silver , lead and zinc provide 10% of GNP.
Castillo says he will increase the amount of the budget for health and education to 10%.
He will withdraw Peru from the American Convention on Human Rights known also as the San José Pact. He will renouce his presidential salary and live on his teacher’s salary.
