Road block in Chanchamayo

In Chanchamayo, locals who lost their homes in this year’s El Niño phenomenon blockaded the highway from Tarma to
La Merced yesterday, demanding more help from the central government.

Local mayor Willy Hammer Astete told CPN Radio that they had every right to protest, after the heavy damage caused by rains and landslides and the rejection of a proposal to improve the Huacará bridge, which is continually being damaged by the flooded rivers.
