This phenomena seems to be growing worldwide.  There seems to be less opposition to highways.

Seems these people are more interested in living in the dark ages than having any modern development that might create employment and improve their lives.

Seems the Zapatistas subscribe to a BANANA/CAVE position.

"...“No to the megaprojects of López Obrador … No to the Maya Train. No to the trans-isthmus train. No to mining. No to wind farms. No to highways. No to oil pipelines. No to hydroelectric dams. No to gas pipelines,” read a banner hung in the Oventic caracol....."

Shut off all utilities to these clowns and see how they like it. That will last about a week tops before they demand to be turned back on at which point just say NO.

The majority of the people living down in that area don't have any "utilities" in the first place.

You can't miss what you never had. Most of them are have not's.
Progress coming into an area doesn't benefit everyone.
Im sure the investors behind this are not thinking about improving lives, just profits.
