On 10 February, Ikojts and Binniza peoples marched in the Juchitán municipality in response to the declarations of Gabine Cué, governor of Oaxaca, in previous days: “we are not 20 drunks; we are peoples in resistance, defending our territory.”

On this same day was celebrated a Communal Assembly in Álvaro Obregón, in which participated people from San Dionisio del Mar, San Mateo del Mar, San Francisco del Mar, Santa María Xadani, Unión Hidalgo, Santa Rosa de Lima, San Blas Atempa, and Juchitán, among other places.  The people reaffirmed in this assembly their opposition to the wind-energy megaproject and called on the governor to listen to the reasons for which the people are opposing this project.  Furthermore, they announced the creation of a communal police in Álvaro Obregón, thus demanding the departure of the state, municipal, and federal police from Col. Álvaro Obregón, as well as the military.
