Protests erupted in Peru, Thursday, December 3, and continued into Friday.

Workers from a mining complex joined farmers in blocking major highways throughout the country, increasing pressure on newly appointed interim President Francisco Sagasti.

The miners are demanding the government to turn over management of their mining complex, while the farmers are demanding a repeal of a long-standing agrarian promotion law. (REUTERS)
