Peru unrest: the people who have taken to the streets to topple the government

Latin America Correspondent

Peru has been wracked by violent street protests against the president for almost two months, after her left-wing predecessor was unseated and arrested.

Almost 60 people have lost their lives in the violence which has spread far beyond the capital, Lima.

Our Latin America correspondent Guillermo Galdos, has travelled to the mountain town of Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca, to speak to those who have taken to the streets determined to topple the new government.
