Protesters Win Repeal of Water Privatization in Mexico

A privatizing water law in the Mexican state of Baja California was repealed Tuesday following mass demonstrations against further privatization. The state’s Governor Francisco Vega issued the decree Tuesday but would not answer press questions, only stating that the decision will benefit the people of Baja California. protesters are blocking state facilities in the state capital to demand the resignation of the local president and the deputies who voted in favor of the water law. They also demanded the state eliminate the gas tax and immediately pay salaries and benefits kept from state employees.
