Number of Peruvians march against Fujimori pardon

Lima (Peru), Dec 29 (ANI): Peruvians enraged over President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski's pardon of former strongman Alberto Fujimori marched, in what was expected to be the biggest protest yet against the two men since the Christmas Eve measure was announced. The size and impact of the protests could be an indication of whether the uproar over the pardon locks Kuczynski's already weak government into a political crisis, or peters out as he revamps his Cabinet and seeks new allies in Congress.

At least 40,000 people were expected to march in the capital Lima, and demonstrations were also planned in cities across the country and in foreign capitals, according to Jorge Rodriguez, a representative of one of the activist groups organizing the protests.
