A group of 150 protesters removed and burned the wooden fences that delimited a construction site in the dock area of ​​this El Cuyo, because, they claim, they intend to build hotels.

If it is part of the reserve as they claim, the federal authorities will have to resolve this conflict and explain to the people the intentions that exist with this disputed property.

For his part, Jesús Callejas Soto, responsible for the work, said that he has the corresponding permits to build a warehouse.

During the morning the work was suspended so as not to further enrage the people, pending the ruling of the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas. The concentration of the protesters was in front of the municipal commissioner of that port, where they explained the reasons why they prevented that area from becoming a hotel zone.

The protest in EL Cuyo turned violent at one point, when protesters set fire to a wooden fence.

Municipal and state agents remained at a distance to prevent any confrontation between the protesters and some other group of those who claimed to be the owners of that property. Callejas Soto commented that he will not fall for provocations and that he will do everything according to the law.
