MSNBC / APProtests grow in Peru ahead of Latin American leaders' summit: "Gen. Eduardo Perez, the director of Peru's national police, said 2,300 extra police have been sent to Cuzco, while army troops had been deployed to secure and control access to the Andean city's airport." Nothing like an international event to attract protestors and marches. It's when interest groups have the best leverage to get to the President.
La Esquina del Movimiento (roughly meaning Street Buzz or, literally, the Corner of Movement) is
just outside the University Rector's Office on the main square of Ayacucho,
or Huamanga to those who love it best. It got that name because it's where the
students, professors and pueblerinos gathered to read the Lima newspapers,
talk politics and taste life. It was the epicenter of Huamanga's vitality
before the violence of the '80s and early '90s ravaged the town. Now Huamanguinos,
Peruvians and Peruvians at heart are scattered around the world so this
page -- and website -- tries to imitate that magic.
