Global News published this video item, entitled “Peru protests: Farm workers block off major highways, demanding better wages” – below is their description.
Protests by farmworkers demanding better wages in Peru continued for a fourth day on Thursday, spreading north into key agricultural areas of the Andean nation, derailing harvests of some crops, snarling transport of produce and turning violent, leaving at least one dead.
Peruvian interim President Francisco Sagasti called the death of a protester a “tragedy” and told reporters the government would immediately investigate the first casualty in demonstrations over farmers’ rights and wages that began on Monday.
Farm workers said police had attacked protesters to clear roadways and tame the demonstrations. Protesters threw rocks at the police in response.
Workers from Camposol, a major fruit exporter, joined the fray on Thursday. Farm labourers from agro-exporter Talsa announced they too would join the rallies on Friday.
