  • 0:02 - 0:09
    Call to the Governor of Guerrero to sign The Agreements of Cacahuatepec
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    The end of PAROTA
  • 0:18 - 0:23
    The Mexican Government is trying to impose, since 2003, a huge dam known as "Parota", in the south of
  • 0:23 - 0:27
    Acapulco, State of Guerrero, Mexico
  • 0:29 - 0:35
    More than a 100 thousand people would be affected: 25 thousand displaced from their land and
  • 0:35 - 0:36
    75 thousand would suffer indirect impacts.
  • 0:38 - 0:40
    River for life
  • 0:40 - 0:46
    The farmers have been organised for 8 years in CECOP, strongly resisting in a legal and pacific way.
  • 0:53 - 0:56
    No to Parota
  • 0:56 - 1:00
    In may 2011, the Governor of the State visited the area to speak to the farmers.
  • 1:00 - 1:03
    It was the first time in 32 years that a Governor visited the region
  • 1:05 - 1:09
    Aguas Caliente fighting. The end of Parota
  • 1:18 - 1:26
    The fight continues! The fight continues!
  • 1:33 - 1:39
    We are waiting for the Governor, to see if he can talk to us...
  • 1:39 - 1:42
    The Governor Angel Aguirre Rivero arrives...
  • 1:49 - 1:51
    Hurray CECOP! Hurray!
  • 1:51 - 1:54
    Hurray the communities! Hurray!
  • 1:54 - 1:58
    The people united will never be defeated!
  • 1:58 - 2:03
    We go to the streets and go to the Tribunal to defend
  • 2:03 - 2:08
    our land, we don't agree with it!
  • 2:11 - 2:16
    Why? Because the land doesn't have a price, the land is like our mother!
  • 2:16 - 2:20
    The project of Parota doesn't bring development,
  • 2:20 - 2:27
    it doesn't bring benefits, the only thing that brings is death of thousand of farmers because they'll
  • 2:27 - 2:31
    be displaced. This is the opportunity we've been waiting for
  • 2:31 - 2:44
    to tell to the Governor, Lic. Angel Aguirre Ribero, that our communities will never accept to give away
  • 2:44 - 2:48
    1 cm2 of land, so transnational companies continue to steal from us...
  • 2:48 - 2:51
    Hurray CECOP! Hurray!
  • 2:52 - 2:56
    The community confirms the opposition to the project...
  • 3:05 - 3:15
    The decisions will be taken by yourselves
  • 3:15 - 3:19
    you will be the ones who decide if YES or NO,
  • 3:19 - 3:25
    I've already clarified my position
  • 3:25 - 3:28
    "We don't have to decide, we've already decided!"
  • 3:28 - 3:34
    Ok, ok, besides the Tribunal has already decided, isn't it?
  • 3:34 - 3:38
    And the resolution will be respected
  • 3:38 - 3:42
    CECOP presented a document with 5 points known as "The Agreements of Cacahuatepec" and asked the Governor
  • 3:42 - 3:44
    to sign it.
  • 3:45 - 3:51
    First, the Governor of the State of Guerrero, will advocate for the cancellation
  • 3:51 - 3:58
    of the dam project Parota...Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico, May 7th, 2011
  • 3:58 - 4:04
    What the Governor has to do? "To sign it!"
  • 4:04 - 4:09
    Hands up for the Governor signing the agrement!
  • 4:09 - 4:13
    "He has to sign it! he has to sign it!"
  • 4:13 - 4:19
    The General Secretary of Government will revise it, and if there is no legal problem,
  • 4:19 - 4:24
    I will invite you to a commission, and I'll be glad we sign it.
  • 4:24 - 4:30
    Go ahead, and we'll be here again. Thank you, Aguas Calientes.
  • 4:31 - 4:35
    But, four days after this...
  • 4:35 - 4:50
    "Aguirre confirms the construction of the dam Parota"
  • 4:50 - 4:55
    Join us in the struggle so the farmers of CECOP are not displaced from their land and livelihoods
  • 4:58 - 5:02
    We have to defend the river Papagayo.
  • 5:05 - 5:11
    Join us to collect 3000 signatures before June 7th, a month after the visit of the Governor.

Desde hace 8 años el gobierno mexicano intenta construir una presa que afectaría a 100 mil personas en el estado de Guerrero, México. Este 7 de mayo por primera vez en 32 años, el Gobernador visitó la zona que será afectada. Las comunidades reiteraron su posición de oposición al proyecto y le pidieron firmar los "Acuerdos de Cacahuatepec" mediante los cuales el Gobernador se compromete a gestionar la cancelación definitiva del proyecto. Sin embargo, unos días después él afirmó que el proyecto se construiría.
