PERU : Peaceful Conga Gold Mine Protests Resume.


     About 1,000-2,000 marched peacefully in Cajamarca against the proposed $4.8bn Conga gold mine project.
     Last month...Peru suspended freedom of assembly after protests there drew 5,000 people onto the streets...with dozens injured in clashes with police.
     Locals fear the project will pollute their water supplies.
