Paraguayan Senate Ousts President Lugo

On Friday, June 22, the Paraguayan Senate voted in favor of removing President Fernando Lugo from office. Lawmakers brought President Lugo to an impeachment trial after 17 people died in a land dispute last week. Netizens followed the trial throughout the day, posting their impressions and reactions on Twitter using the hashtags #Lugo and #juiciopolítico (“political trial”). Others also used #apoyoaLugo (“I support Lugo”) to show their support for the President.
