Meanwhile, over at another Peruvian web portal Deambiente.com, a couple of individuals have also called for a protest outside the home of Humala Ollanta's parents in Lima which, according to Blabbeando sources, is also happening tomorrow night. Though the call is also for a "peaceful and respectful" demonstration, the writers say that it will be a way to demand that gay rights be protected even under a Humala presidency. Depending on the turn out, some peace march participants are saying that they will join the protesters outside Humala's parents' home after the peace march is over.
It's not clear how much reach both portals have so we will have to wait until a couple of days to see if these plans come to fruition.
