Introduction edit

This quarter's Peru article improvement drive is part of the WikiProject on Peru and is a collaboration to improve Peru-related articles to featured article status.

Nomination and voting

Articles to be improved can be nominated by registered users in the "nominations" section below, with an explanation of what work is needed. Please do not nominate articles involved in edit wars. Each quarter, the article with the most support votes is chosen. Opposing votes are not counted, the nomination is an approval voting. In case of a tie, the candidate that was nominated first wins. You can vote for as many articles as you like. As with any other vote on Wikipedia, sockpuppets are banned.

Current Peru Collaboration Effort
The current collaboration is:

Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, was the President of Peru and the leader of the Peruanos For el Kambio faction. Being a product of the United States in terms of education and work, Kuczynski ran unsuccessfully in 2011 for the presidency, but later vectored in the 2016 general election in Peru over Keiko Fujimori, daughter of the political patriarch of Fujimorism, Alberto Fujimori. Kuczynski's term began in 2016 and ended in March of 2018 with a corruption scandal that involved Brazilian infrastructure company Odebrecht. He promptly resigned and his Vice president Martin Vizcarra would succeeded him to be the President of Peru.

Inca Empire (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) edit

Nominated October 9, 2007
It is a Top-importace article in Wikiproject Peru and also in Wikiproject South America. It lacks many references and sources, and has many sections to improve. Also it can be useful to improve it, because is one of the main topics about Peruvian Prehispanic history. (sorry for my bad english).

Peruvian Amazon Company (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) edit

Nominated September 29 2023
Subject that deserves more study. The Rubber boom transformed Iquitos from a town >10,000 into the biggest Peruvian city in the Amazon. The largest rubber exporter operating in Iquitos during the height of the rubber boom was Julio Cesar Arana, who established the Company in 1907. Arana was the mayor of Iquitos between 1902-1903. One of Arana's largest ally's, Luis F. Morey became the senator of Loreto in 1901. Morey's fleet of ships were instrumental in the success of the PAC. Besides the Putumayo, Arana also owned rubber extracting territories on the Hullaga river, a tributary of the Marañon. His business partners had rubber extracting enterprises on the Ucayali, the Marañon and their tributaries. Arana's brother in law Pablo Zumaeta later became the mayor of Iquitos in 1912, 1914, and between 1922-1923. The Company had a huge impact on the city of Iquito's, and the development of Peru's territory in the Amazon. This goes without saying the Company had tremendous, and horrible impacts on the local indigenous populations as well as their culture. Years after the liquidation, Miguel S. Loayza, who worked for the PAC and Arana since its inception, forcefully migrated 6,719 Natives deeper into Peru before the Putumayo border changed. Some of these Natives still live in Peru today. I can provided further information however I am requesting some collaboration on this page.
