DescriptionOur participant tells us about the arrival of the company that is in the territory of Chajul. He says that the municipal mayor is the one who allowed it and sold the land to the company without consulting the inhabitants. The same is true for doing damage in their territory, for making a tunnel in the hill, and for the installations of the towers, but they were forced and it was not out of consciousness that they gave their territory, he emphasized.
