“It’s been 33 days now that we are under this same situation, it is not sustainable, and if the stoppage continues to lengthen, we will have to apply some measures that go against the workers,” said the entity‘s general manager, Edgardo Orderique.
He also added that actions are being taken to avoid this situation, for which Prime Minister Aníbal Torres is expected to go to the company to resume dialogue with the affected communities.

“The conditions that the communities are setting is that we do not operate, if we try to transport supplies to enter the facilities, we are going to have blockades and even attacks,” Orderique specified.
It is worth specifying that the local communities established themselves since last April in the company to demand that the commitments made in 2014, when they sold their land to the company, be fulfilled.
