“Delegates of both groups (Federation of Miners in Madre de Dios, and National Federation of Miners) will arrive Wednesday to Lima to participate in the formation of a high Commission that would look for a solution for the social crisis that came about following the measures of force being used by the informal miners.
Another situation exists in kilometer 620 of the Pan-American South Road, where more than 6000 miners are blocking this route. The miners in KM 620 are saying that they will continue with this form of protest, because their reclamations differ from those of their colleagues of Madre de Dios. “
