With the help of Simón Bolívar, the Venezuelan general who liberated several other countries, the fight for full independence was won in 1824. For a century, Peru worked to secure its territory and build its social institutions.

Shining Path

In 1980, the Maoist group Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) began a campaign of violent guerrilla warfare aimed at overthrowing the government. In the 1980s and 1990s, the Shining Path and other terrorist organizations were responsible for some tens of thousands of deaths. They held power in the Upper Huallaga Valley and were paid by drug traffickers for protection and the right to operate in the region. That was so amazing.
