Live from Mexico City

Protesting the destructive construction work of the "Maya Train"


We are currently live in Mexico City with our local partner organizations Kanan Derechos Humanos, Racismo MX, Cejil, el Consejo Civil Mexicano Para la Silvicultura Sostenible and Greenpeace México to make a statement against the human and environmental rights violations linked to the construction of the Maya Train.

Together we are installing a plaque and we ask the responsible parties this important question:

Is the destruction of rainforests, the eradication of local animals, such as jaguars, and the eviction of Indigenous people and local communities worth it?

We need you, Sylvia, to make our presence known and our demands as public as possible while we are live on the ground.

You can share the images and footage of our action via Twitter and Facebook:



Thanks for all that you do,
Andrea and the SumOfUs team
