Fitch Ratings / PRWirePopular Turmoil in Peru Could Have Adverse Policy Implications: "Fitch said that it expects the current political turmoil probably does not presage a political or economic crisis in the near-term. The agency believes that an overt challenge to President Toledo's incumbency is unlikely." I gues that means that a coup is not likely.
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.
