Protest in Cusco, originally uploaded by katherinebruder.
As mentioned in my previous post, there was a peaceful protest in the Plaza de Armas of Cusco on Sunday.
Campesinos (people from the countryside) ventured into Cusco for the day to protest the building of a new dam in their region. They were protesting the Peruvian government and, more specifically, President Alan Garcia for their decision to build this dam which would take land from the people in Canchis.
Despite being only in Cusco for one day, the strike and protesting has been going on for the past two weeks.
