The purpose of this article is to show how commercial agriculture processes and climate change are depleting groundwater aquifers in the northern state of Chihuahua, Mexico, as well as to reconstruct the movements, demands and achievements of farmers struggling against the private and exclusionary appropriation of water resources.
