Peru More Protests

November 26, 2012 – Peru has recently seen a wave of protests, including several held by teachers and doctors. The teachers union is believed to have close ties to MOVADEF, the group Garcia wants to ban. Meanwhile, mining companies continue to face extensive protests as well, which can directly impact their operations. The largest foreign investment in Peru’s history – the $4.8 billion Conga mine – was suspended by the government in August following intense protests. – Joachim
