A few days ago it was announced that Grupo Mexico had made its own once again, this after last Tuesday July 9 a “failure” in one of its pipes caused the spill of 3 thousand liters of sulfuric acid in the waters of the Sea of Cortés , this in one of the facilities that Grupo México has in the area of docks of Apiguay, in the Maritime Terminal of Guaymas.
Although Grupo Mexico and the authorities clarified that the situation had been controlled and there was nothing to worry about, local deputy Carlos Navarrete indicated that three people were injured by the spill. In addition, several local media and organizations called on the federal authorities to investigate what happened for “damages perpetrated against the health of Mexicans and the environment by this company.”
The first proof of Grupo México’s damage to the environment has apparently arrived . And it is that in the San Francisco Beach of San Carlos, in Guaymas dozens of people who were in the place witnessed the sad and harrowing way in which a sea turtle was affected by the chemical spill of Grupo México, which it caused swelling and later death.
The videoclip that was published in the profile of Facebook of deputy Carlos Navarrete Aguirre , relates that the sea turtle (which in the video is swollen and dying), was taken from the sea and that although it is not known with certainty if the chemical spill was the cause of his death, that is most likely, because he mentions that in the area there are also more dead fish.
“This will not go unpunished we want and demand the cancellation of the concession to the toxic group of Germán Larrea Mota Velasco. The death of a sea turtle in the San Francisco beach of San Carlos, is the beginning of the environmental tragedy that caused Grupo Mexico, on Tuesday, July 9, when thousands of liters of sulfuric acid were spilled into the Sea of Cortez from its facilities. Apiguay in Guaymas, Sonora, “ says the publication shared by the deputy of Morena.
“Germán Larrea Mota Velasco is destroying our environment, destroying hills, mountains, pollutes our rivers, the sea, our environment, causes us diseases, kills us of cancer and kills all kinds of animal species” adds Navarrete, affirming that in his representation as secretary of the Energy, Environment and Climate Change Commission in the Sonora Congress, he will demand that the concession to Grupo México be withdrawn.
Meanwhile, the real damage that this chemical accident has left in the marine life of the Sea of Cortez is unknown. Where are we going to stop?
