In the photographer's words: "Although Peruvian president Toledo supports the free trade agreement (TLC) with the U.S., many Peruvians are vehemently opposed to it, considering it unfair and unilateral. One way they express their opinions is through the painted message on this country building, which reads: “Down with TLC, Toledo, Bush, TLC=Hunger."
