Fabiola Ortiz

Jose Fidel Sanchez Lopez, Mexico

“My eyes don’t see well, my ears don’t hear anymore, the smoke and the steam are constantly affecting my breath. We all have health problems and are very sick. Those problems are due to the geothermal plant. This last night, a huge boom coming from the well didn’t let us sleep, the noise was too strong. … We want the world to know that we are all dying here. We want the President Enrique Peña Nieto to come and stay only one day here to feel how it is like to survive. He doesn’t know how much we suffer. He should come and visit us.”
