Constellation Brands project causing more conflicts in Mexicali

Jan 17, 2018

At least five people arrested left a series of clashes between agents of the Baja California police corporations and demonstrators of the Resistance Movement “Mexicali Resiste”, which opposes the construction of an aqueduct that crosses the Ejido Choropo in Mexicali, which will serve to supply water to the brewery known as Constellation Brands. The Secretary of Public Security of Baja California, Gerardo Sosa Olachea, explained that state and municipal officials responded to the call of the brewery after protesters intended on Tuesday January 16 to prevent workers from continuing with the construction of the plant. Before the eviction attempt, the protesters received the officers with stones, so they established a security perimeter, for which they pushed them back. The group responded by throwing rocks and dirt, which resulted in a series of intermittent clashes. The first struggles started around 6:00 in the morning on January 16, and lasted for several hours. It was in the afternoon, and after at least five unsuccessful attempts, when the police officers managed to break the protest demonstration. The balance was at least seven people injured, including a policeman and a journalist, who received a stone to the head during the coverage. The State Secretariat of Public Safety (SSP) reported the arrest of five members of the group that was demonstrating and reported that municipal and state police officers will guard the area surrounding the brewery until the construction works are finished. According to state authorities, during the incident that took place last Monday January 15, the State Public Services Commission of Mexicali (CESPM) attended a leak on a potable water network pipeline that supplies the state capital, apparently caused on purpose. Authorities of the CESPM indicated that a construction company performs excavation works for a private individual and for this reason an eight-inch pipe that passes very close to the construction was exposed to the surface, which allegedly attracted the attention of members of one of the groups of “civil resistance”, which proceeded to damage the section of pipe, according to collected evidence. In response, a crew of the CESPM network area reached the point of leakage, performing, as the procedure marks, the closing of valves to avoid further waste of water and then...
