Taking advantage of the tragedies imposed by torrential rains, residents of Cacahuatepec (near Acapulco) have denounced that the government seeks to relaunch the project to construct the La Parota dam and arrest those communal leaders who oppose the plan. On 7 November, in the salon of the Republic of Guerrero House, President Enrique Peña Nieto announced a comprehensive strategy for the state of Guerrero which will see 30 million pesos invested in three primary axes for next year’s budget. Among the planned works, Peña Nieto announced the construction of a hydroelectric dam on the Papagayo River. Without mentioning it by name, the president most likely was referring to the La Parota dam, given that there is no other hydroelectric project slated for that river.
