"Despite a presence around Huancayo, the departmental capital of Junin,
up the Rimac river from Lima, and most notably in its university, the
senderistas seem to always have had a tough time in Junin and Pasco. "
This is correct and the UNC students always tended to support MRTA, at least
while I lived in Huancayo 1984-1986. Nevertheless, SL's favorite tactic -
blowing up the electrical transmission towers from the Mantaro hydroelectric
facility - was often planned by ex-students who had studied electrical
engineering at UNC.
BTW, you get to Huancayo from LIma by going up the Rimac, but Huancayo
itself is nowhere near the Rimac (about 80 miles from Ticllo and the
headwaters of the Rimac). It is on the Mantaro river.
