Clashes between police and workers of a sugar company occurred in the town of Cayalti, Chiclayo, on Friday, when hundreds of police officers arrived at the plant to evict a group of workers who had taken over the place demanding payment of overdue wages.
Footage shows riot police confronting the workers and firing tear gas. Demonstrators respond by throwing stones and sticks. A demonstrator can... Еще also be seen being arrested.
Workers stated that the takeover of the sugar plant facilities is a measure of pressure in the face of wage debts that the Intipuquio company owes them, and which have been dragging on for eight months.
No official number of injuries and arrests were reported during the operation.
