The amparo trial filed by three indigenous communities in the municipalities of San Felipe Tepatlán and Ahuacatlán against the Puebla 1 hydroelectric project in 2016 is about to receive a sentence. After more than 3 years of legal struggle the constitutional hearing was held on June 11, 2019, and now the defenders of the territory expect to know the resolution in no more than 90 business days, about whether the judge approves or rejects the dam which would be built on the Ajajalpan riverbed.
