The Urinsaya Quechua community in Espinar, Cusco, granted a 30-day truce to the Executive, as well as to the mining company MMG Las Bambas and freed the Southern Mining Corridor, reported journalist José Víctor Salcedo.
Within this period, the company and the Government will evaluate the demand of the community to be considered as area of direct social and environmental influence of Las Bambas.
Previously, representatives of Urinsaya indicated that MMG Las Bambas and the Government “have no will to resolve their claim.” On that occasion, the Executive Power asked the community members to suspend their forceful measure for 90 days.
On the other hand, the 11 Quechua communities in the area of influence of the mining project Ccorocohuayco, operated by Glencore, also located in Espinar, have threatened to restart the protests, according to Salcedo.
