Marcha de los Cuatro Suyos

Marcha de los Cuatro Suyos

The Marcha de los Cuatro Suyos (Rally of the Four Suyos) was a series of rallies that took place on July 26-28, 2000, in Peru. Convoked to protest the second reelection of President Alberto Fujimori (1990–2000), they gathered tens of thousands of people. The reference to "four suyos"—administrative units of the ancient Inca Empire—was meant to convey the entire nation's rejection of this reelection. The last day of the rallies saw significant violence that resulted in loss of property and life when six guards of the Banco de la Nación (Bank of the Nation) in downtown Lima were trapped in a fire and died. The Fujimori regime blamed the organizers for the fire, but the organizers accused the security forces of setting it.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
