Inhabitants of that municipality demand a legal remedy against the mega pig farm in defense of the environment and the Maya aquifer.

As they argue, the operation of the farm with its 49,000 pigs represents an ecological risk and the company was fully installed in their municipality without consulting the community.

The people of Homun say they are defending their basic human rights for good quality water.

Regarding today’s protest, it emerged in Yucatan a la mano news website that AMLO’s Morena political party was organizing the march, and that they moved dozens of people through a company that the party commonly uses for this type of activity, which means that Morena actually hires people to attend any march or protest.
