A lot of people are going to wake up asking what in the world occurred overnight in #Peru, and the answer is extremely complicated, so I've decided to make a thread explaining it the best I can.
1st, a brief intro to Peruvian politics: for nearly 30 years, the country has been largely divided between Fujimoristas, the supporters Alberto Fujimori, the former president (1990-2000) who is now in prison for human rights abuses & corruption, & antifujimoristas, his detractors
Since Fujimori was jailed in 2007, the Fujimoristas have been led by Keiko Fujimori, Alberto's daughter. She's also in jail right now as she awaits trial on money-laundering charges. Additionally, there is a dissident Fujimorista party led by Alberto's son. Tons of family drama.

Tensão no #Peru. Presidente dissolve o Congresso, o Congresso tenta derrubar o presidente, manifestantes tomam as ruas.
O presidente pode dissolver o Congresso por lei se os deputados ignorarem dois "votos de confiança" (um mecanismo do governo para obrigar o Congresso a votar temas considerados prioritários)
Na sexta o presidente do Peru enviou projeto que altera a eleição de membros da mais alta corte judicial do país, hoje escolhidos pelos deputados. O argumento é que os deputados de oposição escolheriam juízes "parceiros"

Disturbing.

A pro-#China online stalker has posted the names of my family (w/ whom I have little/no contact) online & then accused me of supporting a terrorist group (!?) for defending the #HumanRights/#PoliticalRights of #EastTurkistan’s #Uyghurs & #HingKong’ers.

Very scary.
… I apologize. I misspelled the hashtag “#HongKong” because it’s so late.

This person is obviously trying to elicit someone to attack my family — again, with whom I have essentially no contact — in order to silence me.

Have you no shame, @ChnEmbassy_jp?

Truly scary.
… when I was a kid, my family was targeted by Maoist terrorists (Sendero Luminoso, the Communist Party of #Perú), so for me, the struggle against terrorism (esp. #China’s Maoists’ & #HKPoliceTerrorism) is PERSONAL.

Scary déjà vu that they’re again being targeted, now b/c of me.

Tras la propuesta del Presidente @Lenin y el respaldo de la FEF para organizar el #Mundial2030 junto a #Colombia y #Perú abro el siguiente hilo informativo:
@Lenin Los mundiales costaron :

Sudáfrica: 6.000 millones USD.
Brasil: 13.600 millones USD.
Rusia: 14.000 millones USD.
Qatar: 200.000 millones USD (Llegará a esta cifra según el ministro de Finanzas del emirato, Ali Shareef Al-Emadi).
@Lenin Cuando Brasil organizó el Mundial, la #FIFA le exigió:
- Exención de impuestos para la FIFA y sus asociados (un estudio del tribunal de cuentas de la unión señaló que el país dejó de recaudar más de mil millones de reales).

Cuando emigré a Argentina lo hice en bus desde Caracas, fueron 15 días rodando con mi maleta y mochila por las carreteras y autopistas del Sur de América.

Llevaba pasaporte vigente, direcciones de mis amigos para el registro de cada frontera, 300 dólares y TDC para mostrar.
Pasar por cada frontera era como estar montada en la montaña rusa, un vacío en el estómago frente a cada taquilla de migración. Pude ver cómo llevaban a personas a las oficinas, estos necesitaban responder otras cosas.
En San Antonio del Táchira (frontera con Colombia), mi temor era la "matraca" de la GNB y que al negarme a pagar me rompieran el pasaporte. Ahí ví de todo tipo de negocios el más cotizados era el de la "cola".

So all the people quoting prophesies in relation to #thepacificearthquake just don't know that Peru is part of the Ring of Fire? Earthquakes are common in Peru. And for y'all to be rejoicing as people die because of some "prophecy"...disgusting. #PeruQuakeProphecyFulfilled #Peru
"The South American Plate is moving over the Nazca Plate at a rate of 77mm/year. Earthquakes occur as thrust faulting on the interface between the two plates. The same process has caused rise of the Andes, creation of the Peru–Chile Trench, and volcanism in Peruvian highlands."
Peru has even had an earthquake of magnitude 9 (1868 Arica earthquake). The most recent earthquake above magnitude 8 in Peru was in 2001 (8.4). In 2007, they had a magnitude 8 earthquake. Peru has had so many earthquakes through the years. It's not prophecy, it's science. #Peru

Two-time president of #Peru Alan Garcia was about to be arrested as part of a preliminary investigation into corruption when he locked himself in a room and shot himself. All of Peru’s ex presidents are in jail or under investigation for corruption. larepublica.pe/politica/14513…
García, who is 69, is under investigation in Peru over allegations of bribery tied to the sweeping Odebrecht corruption scandal. He has carefully evaded prosecution for many serious accusations of corruption during both presidencies (electric train, petro audios, etc).
He has also managed to avoid #Peru’s sweeping investigations into human rights violations during his first government when he gave the military a blank check to murder suspected insurgents which resulted in mass human rights violations against non-combatant civilians.

🇨🇳 EE.UU ha acusado a #China de utilizar su poderío militar y económico -mediante la iniciativa One Belt One Road- para ejercer su influencia en países menos desarrollados.

Aunque lo niegue, China está aprovechando su poder para su beneficio geoestratégico.

⬇️ Abro hilo ⬇️
🇹🇴 #Tonga es el último país en unirse a la iniciativa OBOR a cambio de aumentar 5 años el plazo para devolver los préstamos concedidos por China.

Nukualofa debe a Pekín 115 millones de dólares, lo que equivale a casi un tercio del Producto Interior Bruto anual.
🇱🇰 #SriLanka tuvo que arrendar a 'China Merchants Port Holdings' el 70% del puerto de Hambantota por un periodo de 99 años a cambio de 1.100 millones de dólares.

Colombo se vio obligado a realizar esta concesión debido a la enorme deuda externa contraída con Pekín desde 2007.
