Several civil society groups and unions are calling for protests to be held across the country on Tuesday, June 4, to call for the dissolution of Congress and the implementation of political reforms as Prime Minister Salvador del Solar is to present a vote of confidence before the parliament. In the capital Lima, protesters are expected to gather at 17:00 (local time) at Plaza San Martín.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be expected around all protest sites. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Peru, and particularly in Lima, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruptions and a heightened security presence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
