Saturday, 9 december-
Report from Junín today : two police showed up at the community road block to investigate a confrontation that took place earlier in the week when two ministry of the environment officials tried to go into community reserve with a known land trafficker.
The police were driven in a Ascendant Copper Corporation vehicle.
During the short peaceful confrontation, the community prohibited the parties from accessing the land for fear the trafficker was trying to illegally acquire more land to sell to the mining company.
No one was hurt, but the vehicle and its occupants were forced to return.
The police also returned today without any incident.
