The Selvame del Tren movement announced that the first district court, based in Yucatán, granted the definitive suspension of the work on section 5 south and north of the Mayan Train, on the line that goes from Cancun to Tulum. In a statement, it reported that the court determined the suspension of any act of felling or clearing on the lands of that plot as of amparo 2878/2022 filed by members of civil society organizations.
Definitive suspension is granted to the Mayan Train project, reaffirming what has been communicated for a year, that it has not carried out due process, studies or authorizations to advance and comply with the law, he pointed. The court ruling specifies that it should not be done
the removal or destruction of the flora of the land in question, in the areas that are outside the surface in which the change of land use in forest lands was authorized through the official letter SPARN/DGGFSOE/418/1306/2022 of 15 December 2022, signed by the Director of Forest Exploitation, in charge of the office of the General Directorate of Forest Management, Soils and Ecological Planning.
