Hundreds of members of the Electrical Industry and Irrigation Workers Union (UTIER) took to the streets of San Juan against the privatization of electricity in Puerto Rico. The Luma corporation would assume the responsibility of power on the American island colony if privatization went through successfully.
Thousands of farmers continued to gather at Ica, burning barricades in the Panamerican highway and effectively shutting down most travel in Peru. The cities of Parcona, San José de Los Molinos District, Santiago, Tate, and Pachacútec all had their access roads blocked, and Lima remained shut off from the rest of the country. Workers from the province of Pisco also went on strike, joining the Panamerican blockade in Ica.
