Citizens of Eastern Mexican Municipality of Chignautla Set Fire to Town Hall as Water Privatization Seems Imminent

As the mayor of Chignautla is set to make water a privatized utility, citizens of the municipality have taken to the streets to make their voices heard. On Monday, protestors busted down the doors of town hall and set the building ablaze.

Demonstrations have continued into Tuesday, with the protestors blocking traffic on the highway. The mayor has denied that the water is being privatized, though speculation remains over his scarcely detailed “Drinking Water Operator System.”
