According to that organization "there are some wounded by firearm bullets, and also approximately 20 women from the common pots of the Iscahuaca, Aymaraes town center, who have been detained."

Meanwhile, the protesters in the city of Juliaca in the vicinity of the Inca Manco Cápac airport were dispersed by the Police with tear gas canisters, leaving 23 injured according to local health institutions.

Within that list there are two children, 11 and 15 years old, who received gunshot wounds in the context of state repression.
