Protesters demonstrate outside Parliament in the Plaza de Armas in Asuncion, Paraguay, on Thursday against lawmakers' approval to impeach Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo. Paraguay's opposition-controlled Congress voted Thursday to begin impeachment proceedings against Mr. Lugo for his role in a deadly clash involving landless farmers and announced that the former Roman Catholic bishop's impeachment trial would begin on Friday in the Senate. The protester's sign reads in Spanish "Lawmakers, we won't let you rob our democracy!" (Associated Press)
