Peruvians seek water safety amid mine plan

Protesters march to Lima to demand protection of their water resources amid plans for highland gold mine.



    Protesters in Peru have marched hundreds of kilometres for nine days to reach Lima, the capital, to demand protection of their water sources.

    They say a gold mining project is threatening to change the area's ecosystem, which would affect the lives of thousands of people living in the highlands.
