LIMA, Peru

The Peruvian government this week lifted the state of emergency in Islay Province, ending restrictions on freedom of movement and right to assembly in the province, and unfreezing its bank accounts. The 60-day state of emergency had been declared on May 22nd, in the wake of violent protests against Southern Copper’s planned Tia Maria mining project in the region.
