A press conference was held in Lima yesterday in conjunction with the events organized this week to increase awareness about the injustice of Renco’s investor-state case against Peru.

Several major Peruvian news outlets attended and were briefed on the case, including HispanTV, Gestion, El Comercio, and Servindi, among others. Featured experts presented on the dire situation in La Oroya, the implications of corporations' soaring usage of the investor-state system as an avenue to evade justice, and the increased rights that would be granted to such corporations through the TPP.

This morning, articles ran in several of the major newspapers, including Gestión, La República, and La Primera.

Australia has already announced publicly that it will not take part in the investor-state provisions of the TPP.  Will Peru heed the warning of Renco / Doe Run and follow suit?
