We came from all over the republic and beyond to show our support and to run this historic “Carrera con Causa” – Race with a Cause – to enjoy the charms of a threatened yet defiant pueblo and to bask in its famous hot springs. Here are a few images from the 11th annual Carrera de Los Remedios in Temacapulín, Jalisco, which has been fighting inundation from a hydroelectric dam for more than a decade.  And here is a link to Town Lives in Shadow of El Zapotillo Dam, a report I first wrote for El Daily Post in 2016, when the situation was much as it is today: the case grinds its way through the courts, while government insists, and the people resist.
