Paraguay protest

Paraguayans taking part in the “Long March” protest, a week-long walk from the interior to the capital, arrive in Asuncion, Paraguay, Monday, Feb. 13, 2017.


Organized by the Paraguay Pyahura Party or New Paraguay Party in Guarani, the walk is a protest against the government of President Horacio Cartes who they say only protects the interest of landowners and soybean production, leaving aside the poor.

The protesters are demanding access to health, education and housing, and the resignation of Cartes.
