Word just in from Junin:

A newly formed women’s group in Junin decided to go and confront the miners, who were cleaning up the old abandoned mining camp (site of the Mitsubishi bonfire) , and asked the miners to leave. The miners left!!!, but we don’t have any details on what transcurred. The miners were within the 2,500 hectare reserve Decoin helped Junin buy years ago, thus were there illegally.

Also, there is some doubt now about the real owner of the mining concession. We should find out more by tuesday (monday is an official holiday).

Keep tuned
