Sending in the heavies to squash dissent, Conga – Cajamarca – Peru

Almost a thousand demonstrators travelled to the high altitudes of the mountain lakes of Conga yesterday and successfully carried out their demonstration. Then came the police oppression which started in the early hours of today (18th March) when they began firing plastic bullets, tear gas and live amunition into the crowd.
