The Disperser: In Danger, Once again!
Latest Episode of Illegal Dispossession of a Disabled American
Marina Palmira, officially known as Club de Yates Palmira, in La Paz, BCS Mexico, is violating the law and my rights as a human being in order to discriminate against me for my being disabled socially.
I cannot help myself. I suffered brain damage.
I am completely incapable of meeting my needs
in society because of my disabilities. And
I am universally mistreated because of how
I present myself socially thanks to the disabilities
from which I suffer.
But, Marina Palmira is a high-end marina,
one we are paying $1700USD a month to stay
in. But our money isn't good enough. So now,
they want us gone but cannot just tell us
to leave, so they are trying to force us
to leave by violating Mexican laws.
We have an open complaint with PROFECO, the
consumer protection agency here in Mexico
which we filed yesterday, but we don't have
anything going with that until December 5th.
We were only given a bill Saturday, and now
Wednesday, without notice, they have turned
off our power. This is illegally for two
reasons: one, we live on the boat and you
can't just cut power without notice or reason.
Second is that we offered to pay, but they
refused it, and then turned around and demanded
we pay four times as much; thus our complaint.
What Marina Palmira is doing is sick, wrong, and in fact illegal. You cannot cut power to a home without due legal process, not in Mexico and not anywhere else. But it's worse than that. The issue at the heart of all this, the excuse Marina Palmira is trying to use to get us out, is that we didn't have insurance for the second month we were here. Curiously, it appears that the marina tried to get our boat impounded because we didn't have insurance, something we weren't aware of until we tried to pay again for the next month, which means they could have easily reminded us about insurance, but instead acted against us without provocation or reason except discrimination and reaction to rumors. Worse is that Marina Palmira has turned off internet to the dock we are on since October 23rd, as a means to harass us, but which is actually also harassing everyone else in the marina because no one else has internet either.
We are presently waiting for our lawyer to
take care of this, which I believe
have been resolved when we first had
talk to the marina on the day they
our payment. Andrea Geiger is ignoring
despite my having paid her to submit
rights complaint about 4 months ago.
can't do anything immediately. And
on the phone with the US State Department,
who are about as useless as you can
We do not know what to do, except wait.
In the meantime, please feel free to read
our complaint (with all our receipts
and the response from PROFECO, which
in Spanish. But, it does say that Marina
Palmira was wrong and "financially
meaning they are not fit as a business!
NOT USE MARINA PALMIRA.
