Residents of two municipalities in the northern state of Nuevo León in Mexico have protested against fracking for shale gas in their communities.

Residents from Mina and Hidalgo made their demands on Sunday, according to Mexico News Daily.

Allowing fracking would deplete and contaminate water supplies and cause illnesses, protesters claim.

Mexico plans to hold a shale gas auction in September.
