Regarding the armed confrontation, the Attorney General of Justice in the State, Perla del Socorro Ibarra Leyva said "we know there is an injured person who is being treated, we are in support of what the Department of the Navy asks us to do".

Regarding the investigation carried out by the local Attorney General, he pointed out that the initial report received was of firearms detonations and an injured person, but that agents are conducting the pertinent investigations to find out how the events took place.

However, he recalled that the complaints filed by the Secretary of the Navy are made before the General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic.

             


              
During his visit last Tuesday to San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador assured that he would support the fishermen. However, he did not detail how he would do it. For two years there has been a ban on the Port of San Felipe, which prevents the communities of the Gulf of Santa Clara, in Sonora, and San Felipe, BC, from obtaining economic resources.

  1. It’s going to get ugly ass hell down in San Felipe. The people who live work and die fishing at the port are going to give the Marin hell. Those fishermen have been going through a tough time down in San Felo and now the killing of the fishermen just busted a bubble of hell. It’s going to get bad

  4. ugh the guy in the last video, acting all righteous about the sea and their labor when it's obviously clear that they are involved in crime and the chinese black market, then saying that the vaquita marina is being extinct by unrelated causes, OK.

  5. Don't forget that PRI may be behind all those unions, as it always is. This has always been their style for destabilization. I'm not saying AMLO is right, but as a mexican living in my country I've been seeing this tactics for more than 30 years. Why they didn't get angry in the past years? Because bussiness was booming, there are lots of shady narco and chinese businesses and buildings all along the gulf of cortez's coastline and waters, another example: the seri people in Punta Chueca help some cartels trafficking since they are their own nation and that's been always known, it's almost part of their identity and I understand, I would also be resentful of the government if I was on their situation.

  6. These people who claim to be proud Mexicans are upset and willing to sacrifice an indigenous mammal of their country -- the vaquita's only habitat is Mexico, so they can make money from the Chinese. How is this patriotic?

    I could not imagine the Chinese would sacrifice their pandas just to make a buck. Sorry, I have no sympathy for these people.

    Would the USA let the Bald Eagle go into extinction for buck?
