As usual, these mills promised to create jobs and to apply the Elemental Chlorine Free ECF technology to their industrial processes, which is the method that is most widely used in the world and that at least in theory had made progress until reaching levels of almost no contamination.

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.

When the study was disclosed to the public at large, it was proven to be extremely poor and evidently targeted at merely justifying the project, which is not unusual in these cases1. However, there are two very important elements in that action. Its horizontal organization makes it particularly appealing for Argentines, who ambient largely lost faith in the political system and are interested in seeing how a spontaneous social movement is able to deal uncompromised with all levels of government.

In light of the fact that the access routes to environmental justice were blocked, the local society, without violence, opted for a parallel environmental justice which ended up forcing the Government to reverse its decisions.

But the growth of ambient Assembly, and particularly their great success with blocking the bridge, put the government in a very uncomfortable position: This person’s subsequent prosecution and imprisonment for embezzlement of public monies only managed to tinge the environmental issue with a patina of frivolity, futility and corruption.

Approximately 29, people live there, half of whom are located in three main urban centers of under 8, residents, reborattti the rest in rural areas.

Also of great landscape value are the beautiful Andes lakes.

The environmentalists’ response was conclusive: In this, the expansion of the Internet was critical. A level below the Constitution, already by the late s, there were over 4, provisions related to the preservation of nature broadly speaking, to which others were added later about issues as diverse as nuclear energy, fisheries, formation of different levels of environmental authorities and transportation of toxic materials Bertonati and Corcuera, Giarracca, Norma “Territorios en disputa: Compared to the previous cases mentioned, in this case, the players in the conflict have a different scale and different characteristics.

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. The weakness in this position was evident, as the topic had never been a priority. There were two companies, one Spanish and one Finnish, that were preparing an investment plan to set up two pulp manufacturing plants near Fray Bentos, with a total investment of 1. The news about the project 1 For example, the environmental impact assessment stated that the high voltage line could be installed on the West end of the Quebrada, as the tourists “mainly focus their attention on the Eastern slope.

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

By midthe situation is that of a tense wait, where the government has convinced the Assembly – for the time carllos – to free up the bridge, but in the absence of that element of mobilization and cohesion, the Assembly is planning other actions, such as demonstrations in Buenos Aires.

Briones, The social mobilization in the Quebrada to oppose the construction of the high voltage line was an odd mixture; the two social sectors that we described came together to build a dense communications network that included articles published in regional and national newspapers and TV shows.

It finally opted for what was possibly the worst of solutions: The most striking event was that in March, the municipal administration which had previously had an unclear attitude held a non-binding referendum among the local citizens.

Additionally, another complaint was that the mills were going to produce nauseating odors, which are so characteristic of the pulp mills in Argentina and other parts of the world. It should be noted that the entire region, on both sides of the river, up until that time relied economically on cattle raising and agriculture, with little industrial development.

But this reactivation was done thinking about the economic use of the environment rather than about preserving it. Possibly, as Williams and Mawdsley state, the problem lies in that the contexts and circumstances in the developed countries and in the Third Word are so different that their channels to access environmental justice are also necessarily different.


Nobody is sure how this conflict can be solved, but the construction of paper mills continues and the relations between Uruguay and Argentina have been practically interrupted. By the time the company submitted its environmental impact assessment study to the provincial authorities in October that same year, the issue had become public and the people, spontaneously, began taking to the streets.

But this project has not yet been resumed. The other is that it brought to light the formal rboratti system’s flaws in protecting citizens from environmental impact; in this case it was a large infrastructure project. One of the many interesting aspects of this situation was that the informal quest skciedad environmental justice was conducted without a great physical mobilization.

Finally, in Februarythe Assembly decided to block the international bridge indefinitely.

It is here where we can trace the first environmental conflict related to a spontaneous social action. A high reborattl line in the Quebrada de Humahuaca. However, this created a new activity: But what is undeniable, particularly in a country like Argentina with very limited environmental awareness, is the role played by movements socievad seek environmental justice in raising that awareness.

The mining company had already directly or indirectly appropriatedhectares in the t, within which the gold deposit caarlos located. This anxiety started to take shape when a group of professors of the University of Patagonia based in Esquel began questioning the desirability of the project and made their concerns public, particularly in connection with cyanide pollution, dust from the explosions, the movement of heavy machinery and the use of large quantities of water.

Though both have a long tradition, they have had relatively little impact beyond their limited area of focus. A resounding 81 percent of voters voted against the proposed gold mine in Esquel. These would be very conspicuous in such a restricted territory, as described above. This becomes more evident in the planning of large investments, whose environmental impact may be limited from a territorial viewpoint, but whose benefits are not deemed worthy by the local population that would have to suffer it.

This group was horizontally-organized; there was no sociedar structure and everything was solved through open meetings and deliberations. With this political context in place, I now turn to the justice dimensions of some of Argentina’s most important recent environmental conflicts.
