“In view of the acts of violence that some groups have wanted to create… and in order to reestablish peace… the Council of Ministers has approved the declaration of citizen immobility (curfew) from 2:00 am to 11:59 pm on Tuesday, April 5,” he said in a televised message.
People are pissed.
Protests had erupted across Peru in recent days due to a hike in fuel prices and tolls, during a time of rising food prices, but Lima was mostly calm on Monday.
“A curfew to reestablish order — (this is) an authoritarian measure of Pedro Castillo’s government that shows ineptitude, incapacity to govern,” political analyst Luis Benavente told AFP.
“It is like putting an end to traffic accidents by taking vehicles off the roads.”
Influential journalist Rosa Maria Palacios said on Twitter that Castillo’s 11th-hour announcement of a curfew only revealed how the government had “lost all control of public order”.
“By denying them the right to work, without any real cause, Castillo has put himself in a situation of absolute vulnerability,” she warned.
