The way was closed previously with 2 vehicles, and after a discussion, the "civil" agents attacked froma the trees, but they were repeled. Inmediatly, the riot cops came in, and threw bottles, gas grenades, ans big stones. They persecuted the demonstrators. As they reached them, the cops damaged 20 campesinos with their own machetes. Some were gun shoted. There is no confirmation about a rumor that one demonstrator died in the battle. The campesinos took six men as targets. 3 are cops and the other are funcionaries. They ask for the liberation of their partners to leave the targets free. And they did put barricades al through the raodway, warbninig that they´ll burn a car every 2 hours if their partners arent free yet. The situation got worse, baceuse autorities refused to dialog, and the campesinos warned the targets would be killed if the pertners aren´t free. We´re ready to die, but they´ll do it first.
