Although reports are still rather confusing and both sides seem to be spinning events to suit themselves, there was some kind of confrontation when 200 police approached the striking miners' base camp near the mine gates. As a result six strikers were hit with live rounds by the police. Miguel Yupanqui Ramos, aged 23, was hit in the chest and later died from his wounds. One other is in critical condition in hospital. The other four injured are not in serious condition, I'm happy to say. They were simply shot by the police for staging a strike, I'm very very unhappy to say.
Nobody deserves to die like this. What century are we in?
QEPD, Miguel Yupanqui Ramos. My sincere condolences to his family.
