As the church filled to capacity, people gathered outside, sung hymns, and listened to religious leaders talk." On the evening of June 17, 2015, a mass shooting took place at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, United States. Nine people were killed, including the senior pastor, state senator Clementa C. Pinckney; a tenth victim survived. The congregation is one of the United States' oldest black churches and has long been a site for community organization around civil rights. Police arrested a suspect, later identified as 21-year-old Dylann Roof, in Shelby, North Carolina, the morning after the attack. The United States Department of Justice is investigating the possibility that the shooting was a hate crime or an act of domestic terrorism, among other motives.

The Tia Maria mine is a large copper mine located in the south of Peru in Moquegua Region. The project is operated by Southern Copper Corporation with Newmont Mining Corporation owning a share. In 2011, there were protests against the project which led to the death of three people. Concern about the impact on agriculture led the project to be put on hold. A revised Environmental Impact Assessment by Geoservice Ingeniería for Southern Copper Corporation was approved in August, 2014. The construction permit is pending. A new round of farmer-led protests began in March 2015 and have already taken five lives in more than 60 days of regional strikes. On May 23 the state proclaimed a state of emergency for Islay province, in the south of the country. Farmers fear the project will contaminate the River Tambo vital for their rice crops.
