A large mobile sign mounted on a delivery truck was temporarily parked outside Peru’s Congress with the message “women are defined by biology, not ideology,” addressed to the dignitaries who will be participating in the 52nd General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Lima.
The sign critical of gender ideology, which bore the unofficial logo of the OAS and the trademark of the CitizenGO platform, appeared in front of the Congress building Oct. 3, two days before the start of the international meeting that will end Oct. 7.
The action was criticized by members of the congressional “Caucus for Equality and Gender,” which presented a letter Oct. 3 to the president of Congress, José Williams, requesting “information about those responsible for allowing the truck to enter (the congressional grounds) which had a message of intolerance and anti-rights.”
In response, several members of Congress opposed the caucus’ request as a violation of freedom of expression.
