Power plant stalled by discord in Mexico

Monday, February 24, 2020


Huexca, in southern Mexico, means “place of happiness” in the indigenous Náhuatl language, but the town of fewer than 1,000 inhabitants has become a place of discord.

Some people want a power plant put into operation. Others are vehemently against it, saying it will destroy their rural life and possibly force them to abandon the only land they have ever known, the Associated Press reports.
