Cuajone: industrial unions ask the State to restore dialogue and the right to work

After the blockade of the Southern Peru railway and the water cut in the mining camp of Cuajone (Moquegua), from the National Society of Industries (SNI) and the Suppliers Committee of the National Society of Mining, Petroleum and Energy ( SNMPE) rejected the measure of force of the surrounding towns.

According to SNI, more than 2,000 jobs are put at risk in the area, and US$ 4.8 million are not exported daily, considering that Cuajone covers 7% of copper production nationwide.

While from the SNMPE committee, they supported Southern Peru, and condemned “the violence that has caused the paralysis of operations of the mining camp”, a fact that puts the health of more than 5,000 people at risk after cutting off the supply of drinking water .

Along these lines, they urged the Government to protect the fundamental rights of people and restore public order in the area to continue mining operations.

To do this, they asked the peasant community of Tumilca, Pocata, Coscore and Tala to abandon their forceful measures to resolve the disputes through dialogue.
