This is a triangular conflict between an ejido, the organization El Barzon and Mag Silver, a Canadian mining company. Since 2006 the Canadian mining company illegally acquired land use rights of the common territory of the ejido Benito Juárez. It was a illegal action, because the company did not obtain permission of the ejido assembly as is established by law. On two occasions the assembly denied permission to carry out exploration for mining. Inhabitants of ejido indicate that another major problem is with the organization El Barzón: It has conflicts with people of the same community. So much so that, in October 2012, the Chihuahua government was forced to send state police elements to ejido Benito Juárez to provide security for the population. There were problems for the operation of the Mina El Cascabel and the illegal extraction of water from a Mennonite community near conflict area. The insecurity continued, so much so that in November 2012, two activists were killed defending the River watershed del Carmen against Minera El Cascabel. In 2013, El Barzon reported: Irritados por los recientes triunfos y denuncias de El Barzón en contra de diversas acciones del Gobierno del Estado, éste manipula la administración de la justicia para criminalizar la protesta social y cobrar venganza de uno de los pocos contrapesos que existen al autoritarismo prevaleciente en Chihuahua.
