Environmental Activist Jaime Jiménez Ruiz Killed in Oaxaca

"La Ranas" for Borderland Beat

Jaime Jimenez Ruiz, an environmental activist from Santiago Jamiltepec, Oaxaca, was assassinated. This region has become a benchmark for peaceful resistance against projects in Río Verde, a river in Oaxaca.

Environmental activist Jaime Jiménez Ruiz was shot to death in Santiago Jamiltepec, a municipality in the coastal region of Oaxaca.

The violent incident occurred on the afternoon of Sunday, March 28, on the road that connects the town of Paso de la Reina with Santiago Jamiltepec.

The environmentalist's death was condemned by the Services for an Alternative Education (EDUCA), a non-governmental organization that promotes democracy and development in Oaxacan communities, and works for justice, equity and social participation.

Jiménez Ruiz was a former municipal agent of Paso de la Reina and an environmental defender of megaprojects in Rio Verde, a river in Oaxaca. He was also a member of the committee of the local cattle association and an active militant of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) political party.

Last January, Rio Verde activist Fidel Heras Cruz was murdered in Santiago Jamiltepec. He was opposed gravel, rock and sand extraction from the river bed, a lucrative but damaging industry in the area.
