Comment on former land owner
Thomas Siron: The land regime seems to be intermediate between collectively controled land property under ejido regime (lands are public and peasants are inalienable users) and individual right on plots, at least to lease it. The agrarian system is quite complex in Mexico and requires insights into local situations.

Overall comment

Overall comment
Import of error check - Coordinator's overview comment: Not clear on reviewer's comments. Return to. Import of error check - Reviewer's overview comment: Case in course, to be actualized. In this case, related to the previous one, the conflict between indigenous people and the company (associated with the state) overlaps with a litigation between communities for the property of land, and provokes internal tensions between communities and inside communities about the opportunity to lease a land owned in social property. Opponents to the industrial projects claim for cancellation of lease contracts.
