Recent Mining Protests in Peru

Wed Nov 20, 2019 3:44 am

Last month, the Government of Peru authorized the use of technology armed forces and the police to unblock access to one of Peru's largest copper mines after protesters blocked access to the site for four weeks. A state of emergency was declared for the region for 30 days, which authorized the suspension of free transit rights and the ability to hold public meetings in the Andean providence of Chumbivicas located in the Cisco region of Peru. The provience is a key mining area in Peru and is ranked the second biggest copper mining production area in the world. The Las Bambas mine was close to having to halt production because stocks were running out and accounts for 16 percent of Peru's copper coutput. Copper accounts for 60 percent of Peru's exports and is the key element to the economy of Peru. The protests are a major suffering for the economy in Peru, with not work being done.
