Peru: Imprisoned Police Officers Use YouTube to Call Strike

Categories: Latin America, Peru, Breaking News, Governance, Protest

Through YouTube,  two imprisoned police syndicate leaders managed to send out their calls for a Police strike protesting low salaries on April 5th. Although they are in jail for organizing a previous strike, that didn't stop Edward Casas [1]and Richard Ortega Quispe [2] from lending their voices to make the call for this one where they ask officers on duty to stay at home with their families and reflect on the state of the nation.
