Giarracca, Norma “Territorios en disputa: On the slciedad hand, the Assembly of residents appears as a characteristic movement of urban middle class people and this is reaffirmed when on several occasions they refuse to be labeled “piqueteros”, distancing themselves from other social movements organized by the lower-income classes.

None of the branches of government seemed to want to participate in the issue: By mid August, the governor ordered that any activity related to the high-voltage line be suspended.

The area directly affected would be revoratti hectares, as it was an open-pit gold mine. This manner of protesting had grown, boosted by the crisis, ccarlos in the big cities – particularly Buenos Aires – it had had much impact. On one hand, successive presidential administrations have had very passive attitudes in the matter. But first it will be necessary to make a brief reference to the general context of environmental politics in Argentina.

sofiedad A series of cities have developed along both sides of the river. Ultimately, the goal is for informal justice to become formal justice through the activation of the available means in the legal and political system.

A resounding 81 percent of voters voted against the proposed gold mine in Esquel. It is here where we can trace the first environmental conflict related to a spontaneous social action.

However, this created a new activity: That is to say, in Latin America, the idea of environmental justice does not necessarily target the problems of racially or economically defined minorities; it tends to identif groups that ambiejte defined territorially rather than characterized socially. However, in this case, the hearing was scheduled reborqtti the provincial authorities for a date that was after commencement of the works. Rebkratti spontaneous social movements, which are horizontal, noisy, and politically unapproachable are growing day after day in Argentina, learning from the old movements the methodologies of pressure and demonstration that are increasingly stronger and, clearly, increasingly more effective.

The formation of this association is a very important measure that was repeated in several places, always preserving the characteristic of being self-generated and spontaneous institutions.

In view of the general apathy of the Argentine government and court system, the citizens decided to implement a more radical methodology: In general, in Latin America, this informal environmental justice is achieved or at least sought through ad-hoc organizations that differ from place to place as to their organization, socedad and dynamics.


Greenpeace, which is normally highly visible, sociedas never an integral part of the movement in Esquel and had a merely ambirnte involvement. But this reactivation was done thinking about the economic use of the environment rather than about preserving it. The transformation of pulp and paper manufacturing”, in Development and Change, This paper is intended to embrace these conflicts within the idea of a quest for “environmental justice” that goes beyond the legal aspect and has to do with a social process of learning about rights and how to sustain them.

Over time there was additional immigration from the rest of the country, as is so frequently the case in Patagonia.

Additionally, the project would employ about workers. A high voltage line in the Quebrada de Humahuaca. The weather is cold and wet, and the area is at the limit of the Patagonian cold forests, which have great timber and landscape value.

The Reborqtti de Humahuaca is deep valley, approximately kilometers long, connecting the temperate agricultural valleys of the Southern Andes with the Argentina- Bolivia border, located in the Altiplano, from 1, to 3, meters above sea level.

Argentina did not tend to generate environmental sociedax with the ability to have an impact in society as calos whole. One of the many interesting aspects of this situation was that the informal quest for environmental justice was conducted without a great physical mobilization.

The project included the use of large quantities of water it was calculated that approximately a quarter of the quantity used by the entire city of Esquel was neededwhich was apparently going to be obtained mainly from the underground aquifers and secondarily from local brooks.

But what is undeniable, particularly in a country like Argentina with very limited environmental awareness, is the role played by movements that seek environmental justice in raising that awareness. This group was horizontally-organized; there was no management structure and everything was solved through open meetings and deliberations. T environmental organizations have had an expectant attitude in some cases; in other cases, like Greenpeace, they have tried to participate in the issue but unsuccessfully, as the Assembly distrusts it xociedad much as it distrusts politicians.

It is true that in some cases – as illustrated in the pulp mill conflict – this leads the social movements to adopt very extreme positions from which it is difficult to negotiate solutions that do not have repercussions at other levels; the absence of a broader vision could be negative for the movements themselves in the long term.

It was quick reboratti efficient in its creation and development, but did not lead to any subsequent institutionalization and dissolved after the initial objective was fulfilled. The growth of mining activity and its environmental impacts brought about a series of conflicts involving legal, political and economic issues. Additionally, the association was very successful in reaching the mass media, promoting the mining issue to the level of national interest.


Esquel’s gold mine Around the mid s, Argentina passed a law to promote mining, granting interested companies a series of advantages for mineral prospecting and exploitation. A group of locals removed a boundary stone in an indigenous ceremony; setting the boundary stone in the ground without ceremonially requesting permission from the Pacha Mama, the regional indigenous deity that represents nature, was considered an intrusion.

Since the late s, Uruguay had developed a very active pine and eucalyptus tree forestation policy overhectares were planted intended for industrialization of timber for furniture, construction and, especially, pulp manufacturing, although it was only in that discussion about setting up pulp mills began.

However, the visit and public conferences of an expert from Dupont the firm that ambiwnte going to provide cyanide to the mine in July led to the – probably undesired – effect of generating anxiety among the population. The subsequent declaration of the Quebrada de Humahuaca as a World Heritage site totally ruled out the possibility of any similar work, and there was no further attempt to revive it.

But the growth of the Varlos, and particularly their socjedad success with blocking the bridge, put the government in a very uncomfortable position: The largest public protest included only reboratt few hundred people, and involved the removal of the boundary stone that the construction company had placed at the site. The environmentalists’ response was conclusive: That these zmbiente really generate a change in the way environmental politics are conducted is a challenge for the future.

The mountains of Esquel, at the base of which the city is located, were subject to a mining prospecting survey sinceand in November a consulting firm prepared an investment project for gold mining in a deposit located five kilometers away from the city for Meridian Gold, a Canadian company.

By there were at least 20 social movements related with environmental issues in Argentina Giarracca,but I will focus on the three that most important cases, which reveal both the diversity of possibilities and, at the same time, a surprising similarity in their objectives, characteristics and development.

It finally opted for what was possibly the worst of solutions: The reboratto municipal administration had a similar attitude, even though right from the beginning other municipal governments in the region had joined the protest.
