Mexico Wind Farm Draws Protests, Injuring 22 People

Bloomberg Business Week — March 28, 2013

Twenty-two people were injured yesterday following protests over the construction of a wind farm owned by Spain’s Gas Natural Fenosa in Mexico’s southern state of Oaxaca, Agence France-Presse reported, citing local prosecutor Manuel de Jesus Lopez.

Eleven police officers were hurt and one taken prisoner after trying to reclaim equipment from the Bii Yoxho wind project, AFP said.

The gear was taken by local protesters on Feb. 25, AFP said. Locals say construction of the plant is affecting their fishing and farming activities, AFP said.
