Peru Rises Against Gender Ideology
Despite efforts made by the government of Kuczynski that tried to boycott the massive event.
The event was attended by more than 24 regions of Peru along with the central event in the country's capital, whose attendance exceeded 1.5 million people.
(ACI / InfoCatólica) The march carried out yesterday in Peru has been a complete success. With the slogan #ConMisHijosNoTeMetas, (Don’t Mess with my Kids) has opposed to a section of the Ministry of Education, that wished to promote a National Curriculum for minors that included criteria related to gender ideology.
The event was attended by more than 24 regions of Peru along with the central event in the country's capital, whose attendance exceeded 1.5 million people, where the protesters with various banners and slogans critical of gender ideology covered the main districts of the Peruvian capital.
The march in Lima was attended by the Colombian deputy Ángela Hernández, who headed in Colombia, in 2016, a series of demonstrations against the indoctrination of children in gender ideology. The massive protests led to the resignation of the then Minister of Education of that country, Gina Parody. The Colombian MP urged Peru's President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski to listen to "the democratic will of the people and remove all the indoctrination related to gender ideology of the school curriculum" and "respect the right of parents to educate their children".
Among those present were congressmen Julio Rosas, Carlos Tubino, Nelly Cuadros, Juan Carlos Gonzáles, Marco Miyashiro, Roberto Vieira, Federico Pariona and Edwin Donayre.
The episcopal vicar of the Family and Life Commission of the Archdiocese of Lima (Peru), Fr. Luis Gaspar, stressed that "education, as the first right of parents to their children, is not negotiable."
"We are in a moral war, in a spiritual war and the battlefield is the mind of the children, and we will defend it until the end of our days."
Fr. Gaspar also invited the demonstrators to participate in the March for Life, to be held in Lima on March 25.
The archbishop of Arequipa has also expressed itself strongly against the imposition of gender ideology in schools.
The demonstrators also criticized the media, who often ignore or minimize the magnitude of the marches in defense of life and the family.
