I have heard, but I did not see, so I traslate the article from http://peru21.pe/noticia/457019/arequipa-mineros-informales-hablan-seis-muertos-varios-desaparecidos while I am writing down some interviews and events from today.
In this link you would also find a video of the protest in Arequipa.

From Peru21 this morning

Arequipa: informal miners speak of six dead and several disappearing
They demand that a high commision would be form in order to take care of the situation, that is opposing the decree that formalizes this activity.

The deaths are of 6 informal miners in Chala (Arequipa), occurred during the “indefinite strike”, a number that could increase. According to the same demonstrators at least 6 others have disappeared.

…..

ok, the article is much longer but I have to go out. so more, later.
