Mexico: Focus Sheet: La Parota project threatens human rights and livelihoods
Insufficient consultation of affected communities and an atmosphere of mounting tension, violence and intimidation have characterized government steps to build a hydroelectric dam, La Parota, in Guerrero State, Mexico. The Federal Commission of Electricity (CFE) says that only 2,981 people would be displaced by the dam. However, NGOs estimate 25,000 people in three municipalities would have to leave their land, and that further 75,000 would face indirect consequences. The Mexican government and the CFE must ensure human rights are respected, protected and fulfilled in preparing and implementing La Parota project.
