President López Obrado is determined to bulldoze through huge swathes of Mexico’s last remaining rainforests to build his monstrous Mayan Train railway project.
And he’s using whatever power he can to ram through its construction: staging referendums, attacking activists in the press, and just recently decreeing a law that’ll force officials to automatically grant permits without any ecological or humanitarian regulatory checks.
But local activists aren’t giving up -- and neither are we.
We have 30 days to challenge this disastrous decree in court...it’s going to take an urgent, all-out legal push to overturn it and give local activists a fighting chance to stop this destructive train in its tracks.
Your donation today will go to quickly hire constitutional experts and lawyers, pay legal fees, fund research and our campaign to protect Mexico's last remaining rainforests -- can we count on you to chip in?
