inShareDestaca Edil alternativa económica para pescadores en entrega de impermeables
The Mayor, Agapito Magana Sanchez, gave shirts and raincoats to the fishermen during a tour of the five fishing cooperatives (Caribe, Justicia Social, Patria y Progreso, Macax & Isla Blanca). He announced the creation of a Fishery Department (Dirección Municipal de Pesca). He wants the agency to meet the demands of the fishermen, and to improve their working conditions. Galtazar Gomez Catzin will act as their liaison. He spoke about the importance of having documentation in order to benefit from government programs for working union members. He mentioned alternative programs to help the fishermen out economically such as maricultura.. sea-agriculture. He agreed to work with the fishermen on topics that need attention like Isla Contoy and the lagoon Chacmuchuch.
With help from the VolunQuest organization, police in Isla Mujeres will be taught English, starting now.
(There is a comment below this on FB saying this is a good thing because there was an accident by Mundaca the other day and they were not understanding what the foreigners said, until the poster's sister translated for them and the Red Cross).
