Zoques communities reject hydrocarbon exploration projects

Communities and ejidos from the municipalities of Tecpatán and Francisco León, Chiapas, reject hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation projects in their territories. Through a communiqué dated 6 October 2016, they informed that in assemblies they decided to defend the Mother Earth and their culture as Zoque peoples. On 31 October, at the municipal seat of Tecpatán, approximately 1,500 people marched in rejection of the structural reforms and for an end to the imposition of hydrocarbon projects.
