The APPJ has been peacefully resisting the construction of the wind-farm Bií Hioxo, which is managed by the Spanish venture capital firm Gas Natural Fenosa (GNF), on the Tehuantepec Isthmus. According to the APPJ, the affected communities have not been properly consulted about the many large-scale development projects which are currently under construction in the Isthmus. Since its inception, the APPJ has repeatedly denounced aggressions against those who work to defend their land and territory.
