Quechua scholars Yojana Miraya Oscco and Renzo Aroni talk about the historical context surrounding the far-right coup of President Pedro Castillo in Peru and the mass mobilizations fighting back. Police repression has targeted the southern regions where Yojana and Renzo are from. The violence harkens back to the days of the US-backed dictatorship. The general strike and the deadly street battles show that a new political alternative is on the rise."
