Dozens of people were arrested Thursday in the Peruvian capital, Lima, while a new demonstration against the installation of toll took place in the town of Puente Piedra and the rise in the rates to pass through that area of the capital.
The mobilization was convened through social networks by the collective “youth against the toll of North Lima” and with the participation of some 500 people, however, was repressed by the police of that country when a group tried to get to the toll.
