Welcome to the new Peru (just the same as the old Peru)


  • Miners protesting? Check
  • Main road blocked because only way of attracting attention to cause? Check
  • Police called in? Check
  • Police use heavy-handed and violent tactics to confront strikers? Check
  • Dozens of injuries? Check
  • One death already confirmed? Check
  • Protests continue? Check

That's today at the Doe Run complex in La Oroya, on the country's main Central highway. One report here, hundreds more if you check GooglyAlphabet.
