Demonstrator climbs a 90 foot high crane in Constellation Brands construction site, the company will sue him

Nov 6, 2017

Monday morning before dawn, an individual identified as “Don Fili” and another guy broke into the grounds where the new brewing plant of CONSTELLATION BRANDS is being built, in Ejido Choropo around kilometer 10 of the Mexicali-San Felipe highway according to a press release issued by the company. The press release adds that these two people climbed a 60 feet high crane which is being used in the construction of the brewing plant which the militants reject because they say it will use out “all our water”, information that the company’s director Jorge Burgos, hasn’t denied nor comment based on the fact that they have the Government authorization and “that is it” the negative effects that the plant might have on the environment are not of his business, not of his concern. The company also started a Security Protocol to keep safe the physical integrity of those two militants as well as the people who were there working when everything started and they reported the incident dialing 911 to request help of police authorities “in such a delicate situation”. Finally CONSTELLATION BRANDS informed that it will sue those two people and assured (ONCE AGAIN) that security is a priority for them and they are also worried and willing to contribute in a positive manner to Mexicali community   “ . . .with a project which respects the Law, creates jobs and looks after natural resources”, absolutely the opposite of what MEXICALI RESISTE militants say. The best CONSTELLATION BRANDS could do would be to explain the estimated profits they will obtain by investing one and a half billion dollars, but Burgos and his big bosses want to keep those profits secret and not tell, so far they have rehabilitated a school in front of their Choropo plant construction site, but that is all and it only washed Constellation face for a...
