Seperately, in Peru, another clash between the protestors, who occupied a private property, and the police, left one person dead. For days, the police in Peru had been clashing with protestors, who resisted leaving the property they occupied.
Three days ago, 2 thousand 500 occupants seized a private property of 7 hectare in Peru. The land lord sued the occupants on the grounds that he will construct some shanty houses on the land and won the court case.
However, the occupants said that they have no other place to go and want to make a deal with the land lord. But when their demand was declined, they attacked with sticks and stones on the police who came to the property to apply the court verdict.
One protestor was killed in the clash, six others wounded and scores of occupants were detained.
Meanwhile, Chilean miners, who are currently on strike and working for the world's largest copper mine Chuquicamata, blocked a main road in protest to downed wages.
Miners, demanding a pay rise and bonuses, said the company, in contrary, decreased their wages.
Police intervened into the workers protest and opened the road to the traffic after a 3-hour block.
Scores were detained.
The copper mine company announced that the strike did not harm their production.
