Chiapas: Public Denunciation by the United Peoples in Defense of Electric Energy

The organization United Peoples in Defense of Electric Energy (Pueblos Unidos en Defensa de la Energía Eléctrica, PUDEE), an organization which is in resistance to the high energy prices in the Northern Zone of the state, has denounced for years the unjust policy of high energy prices. As stated in their recent communiqué, the new program implemented by the government of Chiapas of Juan Sabines Guerrero, known as ‘Luz Solidaria’ (Solidarity for Light) is being closely scrutinized by PUDEE. The program consists of a subsidy, a ‘tarifa preferencial,’ for certain communities that will result in lower electricity bills. However, according to the communiqué it continues to maintain the high prices intact and is being used as a means of keeping communities divided, in addition to attempting to control and subue the resistance.

Below is the public denunciation of the PUDEE from November 23, 2008
