Peru’s National Television Station airs multiple broadcasts of State of Fear after Fujimori Arrest


Peru’s National Television Station (Canal 7) decides to air multiple broadcasts of State of Fear after Fujimori arrest in Chile:

Peru’s National Television Channel (Canal 7), the most watched in the country, has decided to air multiple broadcasts of State of Fear over the coming year, which will have huge public impact and go a long way towards reasserting the findings of the Peruvian Truth Commission in the collective memory of the nation. As Peru enters a critical election year and ex-President Alberto Fujimori threatens to return, the State of Fear broadcasts will enrich the national debate over which direction the country should take as it continues to grapple with the legacy of a 20-year “war on terror”. As Truth Commissioner Carlos Ivan Degregori says in our film…

“The Truth Commission believes that Peru must remember the terrible years we’ve lived through. If people have no memory, they don’t know if they’re coming or going, and are easily manipulated. The same for a country with no memory. It won’t know its past, will repeat mistakes and be easily manipulated.”
