Hello, this is Paula, reporting from Lima, where Indigenous protesters continue to call for a general reboot of the current government in spite of the challenging conditions they face far from home.

Peru protests: when humanitarian aid runs scarce. Angered by deadly state violence and government deception, Indigenous Peruvians have committed themselves to protest until their calls for justice are heard.
