Cusco starts today an indefinite strike of at least 72 hours to demand the start of cosntruction on the Chinchero International Airport.
The Cusco authorities demand the President of the Republic and his ministers come to Cusco (specifically Chinchero) to give explanations about the postponement of the work
Our Regional Governor stated: ”Given the recent mockery of the President of the Republic and the meddling of Congress, Cusco declared a fight with a 72-hour strike to demand the start of the airport terminal, this attitude was endorsed by authorities throughout the Cusco region.” (Reference)
All Entrances to Cusco are completely blocked; the city has no access. Many travelers and tourists who go to Ollantaytambo – Machupicchu are stranded.
