Lessons from Peru:— Caleb T. Maupin (@calebmaupin) June 9, 2021
1. Building a huge coalition around fighting for working families is more effective than cancel culture social liberalism.
2. Crazy ultra-Maoists like Shining Path do horrendous damage to our movement, and it takes a long time for leftism’s image to recover.
The left-wing candidate Pedro Castillo has officially declared victory in the Peruvian presidential election. ????— Gravel Institute (@GravelInstitute) June 9, 2021
Looking forward to westerners denouncing Pedro Castillo as insufficiently woke. Yes, he’s from rural Peru. He didn’t get to study Judith Butler at an elite university, that’s not a crime.— Ollie Vargas (@OVargas52) June 5, 2021
I’ve seen a few takes on my tl about Peru so here’s my take.— Ethan ?? (@EthanPKaiser) June 9, 2021
Yes Castillo was the lesser evil, and I’m happy Fujimori lost. But Castillo is far from good imo.
His economic policy is really good, but he’s incredibly socially conservative, xenophobic, etc.…
DSA congratulates the citizens of Perú for upholding their democracy amidst a polarizing election. The impending victory of Pedro Castillo and Perú Libre represents the power of the poor, the working class, and the campesinos of rural Perú. 1/5 https://t.co/J3s3taD116— DSA ? (@DemSocialists) June 8, 2021
DSA celebrates the democratic choice made by all Peruvians to elect their new President. While we wait for all votes to be counted and for the electoral process to play out, we ask all electoral entities for transparency and vigilance. 2/5— DSA ? (@DemSocialists) June 8, 2021
…This election has shown that the revitalized and reunited Peruvian left is a powerful force for justice, equality, and revolutionary change. 3/5— DSA ? (@DemSocialists) June 8, 2021
We hope that this election lights the way for other Latin American movements that seek revolutionary social change, and we look forward to the upcoming elections across Latin America as opportunities to continue the social revolution taking place in Perú. 4/5— DSA ? (@DemSocialists) June 8, 2021
DSA firmly denounces Keiko Fujimori’s claims of fraud. Just yesterday Keiko proclaimed that she would accept the results of the election. We urge the international community to stay vigilant against these accusations of fraud and allow democracy to prevail.— DSA ? (@DemSocialists) June 8, 2021
I’m dying laughing watching the DSA congratulate Pedro Castillo who ran and won as a rural populist on his victory in Peru.
Note: In this country, rural voters also hate social liberalism, but are much more moderate on economics and far from sold on neoliberalism.
