Lisel Alamilla

According to Alamilla, a string of consultations will commence this weekend and those will be preceded by a round of meetings with government to bring officials up to speed with what has been taking place.

“Mr. Ross is here this week and we are taking the opportunity of him being here to have our first series of consultations with the villages of San Felipe, Big Falls and San Vicente.  Based on a first round of consultations with the elected leaders, they asked that the commission come to each individual community to have consultations with them.  So we’re starting that this Friday.  Between now and Friday we’ll also be meeting with government officials to discuss the work of the commission and what we have done to date and what we plan to do in the future, in the near future.”


Despite the consultations, there are still concerns among residents in Jalacte on the use of communal land as the site for the construction of an agricultural outpost.
