Current Issues Facing Las Abejas

The government of Chiapas is proposing a hydroelectric dam which Las Abejas believe will be detrimental to the local environment and will bring rapid development and commercialization to the area; devastating local communities.

Free Rivers = Healthy Communities

The rivers have life and soul, they should not be dammed for big business. Don’t let the CFE fool you!

The government also continue to raise the price of electricity forcing families to live without power or illegally tap into local power lines which can be highly dangerous.  A union has been formed of qualified electricians who train community members to safely tap into local power lines.

Don’t pay for electricity! Electricity if for the people!
