On Sunday 11 April, the first round of the presidential elections in Peru produced a major surprise: the victory, against all the odds, of Pedro Castillo, the leader of the 2017 teachers' strike. In the second round, he will face the reactionary, right-wing candidate of Fuerza Popular, Keiko Fujimori, in a clear expression of enormous political polarisation in a country ravaged by the economic crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic.

VICTORIA -- The B.C. Supreme Court has granted an injunction to remove protesters from logging sites near the Fairy Creek area of Port Renfrew.

The blockades were set up in August against logging company Teal-Jones. Protesters say the blockades were established to prevent old-growth logging in the area.

Activists say they will continue to call on the B.C. government to intervene.
