Workers demanding that agro-exporting companies raise their salaries from $ 11 to $ 18 a day used stones, burning tires and an overturned minivan to block the highway.
On Thursday, police opened fire on a group of protesting farm workers, killing a worker in the first labor dispute against President Francisco Sagasti since the centrist politician took office three weeks ago.
"The new blockades are due to the fact that there is still no agreement between the companies and the workers," one of them, Elvis Rodriguez, told AFP. The Panamericana was closed again on Saturday near La Libertad, 490 kilometers north of Liba, according to local media in protest on the anniversary of the death of a 19-year-old worker who died after police wanted to unblock a block.
