Hey, I took a photo!
At the intersection of two main avenues in Pueblo Libre district one can find this golden statue of Doña Maria Parado de Bellido
Parado de Bellido was an indigenous peruvian revolutionary during the years of struggle for the independence from Spain
She alerted the patriots about the enemy's plans of a secret attack against them. Not knowing how to write, she asked a trusted friend to do it so she could send the letters
Eventually she got caught and assumed responsability for the letters saying she wrote them herself, refusing to give any other names
A war heroine...

There’s two confirmed dead, possibly more, after police attacked peaceful protestors in Lima. They are gasing us, shooting marbles at people, targeting those trying to help. There’s undercover cops in the protests, they put drugs in peoples bags and then arrest them while unidentified, wich is kidnaping. The whole country is protesting and the government insist that we are a minority. The media has been bought and is only showing us in a negative light. This is the largest protest in peruvian history, people of all backgrounds, rich and poor, are out in the streets asking for the new “president” that we have now after the coup to quit.
There are military tanks in the streets
Police are targeting first responders
People are literally dying in the streets, this images are from today
Spread information, don't let us die unheard

"It is wrong to focus too much on the testimonial value of his photos. They have that, indeed, but, in equal measure they express the milieu in which he lived and they show that when he got behind a camera, he became a giant, a true inventor, a veritable force of invention, a recreator of life."- Mario Vargas Llosa
