Thursday, May 22, 2014. JUAN CAAL Reporting: Maya communities in Toledo district that are fighting to halt pre-drilling activities by US Capital Energy Limited inside of the Sarstoon Temash National Park have been doing consultations of their own.
And on Tuesday, they held meeting of leaders of the buffer communities at the Machaca Outreach Center in Jacintoville village.
Following that consultation and rally, a press conference was held during which the Executive Director of the Sarstoon Temash Institute for Indigenous Management, SATIIM, Greg Ch’oc told reporters that the resolve of the Maya communities is to stand strong and press on.
It is understood that SATIIM and the buffer communities have gone back to the Supreme Court to seek a post judgment injunction to force US Capital Energy to halt its pre-drilling activities.
That application for a post-judgment injunction is set for hearing the middle of next month.
