all the same. I haven't found a message board but may have found the reason
why I haven't "Ninety per cent of homes and hotels along the beach don’t
even have mains electricity: everything is run from generators, the internet
heat-wavishly slow, the radios mostly battery operated".
There are a few hash tags for Instagram but it is such a limited way to
communicate its hard to find something substantial about the real facts,
and there is no way to thread the conversation, mostly tears and hopes.
What I would like to find out is the way the property was processed.
e.g. Ejido sold it to who, the oral agreement was with who etc.
Found this "According to Roberto Palazuelos, president of the Tulum
Hotel Association, the eviction derived from a longstanding dispute
initiated by Esteban Magana Schiavon who claims leaders of the ejido
Pino Suárez illegally sold the land to individuals. He added that those
evicted on Friday were defrauded by the ejidatarios".
All the evictions were hotels and possibly two private properties.
I Googled Esteban Magana Schiavon and am getting some better results.
Like Tenacatita this is after a 20 year dispute.
Sergio Caballero, Process correspondent reported that after 20 years of litigation, actuaries Civil Court of Playa del Carmen, supported by elements of the police and private guards, they executed the eviction order.
El Diario de Yucatan recalls that state authorities and Tulum Hotel Association reported that diligence is derived from a lease trial sponsored by the regiomontano Schiavon Esteban Magana, as some hoteliers allegedly did not pay the rent. However, they reject the version.
"We know very well that underneath all this is a sale that the governor
made several properties from the beach and now, before he leaves, does
not want to lose the money they got for this beach. Are false papers"
said one hotel to El Universal.
El Diario de Yucatan explains that Tulum is an archaeological site famous
for being surrounded by sea, located in Quintana Roo, one of the 13 states
in which elections were held on June 5. Its inhabitants elected a new
governor and for the first time, won a party other than the Institutional
Revolutionary (PRI), which governs the organization since its
founding in 1974.
"According to the website of Quintana Roo reporter Pedro Canché,
two business groups Monterrey (Schiavon Magaña and Garza Ponce), acquired
an area of 49 hectares in the 50's they called Punta Piedra in Tulum,"
the newspaper quoted. "The place has had, according to the reporter,
numerous evictions, invasions and illegal expropriations since then,
and this time launched a new attack to try to strip ejidatarios and 40
hotel settled in this tourist strip whose value of land exceeds 100 million dollars ".
I am sure someplace there is a message board with a threaded conversation.
