The weakness in this position was evident, as the topic had never been a priority.

This search for “environmental carpos started in as a result of the attempt by the province of Jujuy to build a high voltage line through the Quebrada. Subsequent environmental conflicts and movements would be different. This separation between society and environmental issues has generated a gap between people’s awareness of their environmental rights and the operation of a notion of justice that would protect them.

The decision and the wide scope of the action triggered a strange effect: Although this is a common trait in less developed countries, in this case it is somewhat contradictory, because the environmental discourse is more rooted in Argentina’s highly developed urban middle class, and slciedad middle class has been an important player and driver in other social, economic and political issues. It was quick and efficient in its creation and development, but did not lead to any subsequent institutionalization and dissolved after the initial objective was fulfilled.

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.

However, the Uruguayan government continued its policy of zmbiente for the mills, and in October, it officially authorized the setup of the first csrlos, implicitly accepting their environmental impact assessment. This search for environmental justice comes from malfunctions in the political, economic and judicial systems, which leads the population to feel that it is not given consideration in the decisions about actions that could have environmental impact, even in cases where there are regulations in place that should solve these problems.


But this project has not yet been resumed. Remember me on this computer. However, in this case, the hearing was scheduled by the provincial authorities for a date that was after commencement of the works.

Socio-environmental Conflict in Argentina | Carlos Reboratti –

Additionally, the association was very successful in reaching the mass media, promoting the mining issue to the level of national interest. However, the visit and public conferences of an expert from Dupont the firm that was going to provide cyanide to the mine in July led to the – probably undesired – effect of generating anxiety among the population.

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. By mid August, sociedaf governor ordered that any activity related to the high-voltage line be suspended.

The local municipal administration had a similar attitude, even though right from the beginning other municipal governments in the region had joined the protest. 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.

In Argentina there were already more than 20 such plants and – although they were strong contaminants – no conflict with the population had occurred until then. In view of this public image, subsequent administrations hid the Department of the Environment behind a tangled bureaucracy from which it has yet to escape.

The Quebrada 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. Over time, popular protest and blockages of the bridge grew more frequent.

Though both have a long tradition, they have had relatively little impact beyond their limited area of focus. The transformation of pulp and paper manufacturing”, in Development and Change, Sofiedad time there was additional immigration from the rest of the country, as is so frequently the case in Patagonia.


However, there are two very important elements in that action. 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.

At first, the project did not cause major unrest among the population, particularly in view of the carlso of creating jobs. The formation of a Joint Commission between the two countries proved to be a failure, and both companies started building the plants, which were growing visibly while a deaf ear was turned to the environmentalists’ claims.

A high voltage line in the Quebrada de Humahuaca.

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.

Greenpeace, which is normally highly visible, was never an integral part of the movement in Esquel and had a merely marginal involvement. It was a project of great importance for local standards since large high voltage towers 22 meters high would be set up, every meters throughout the Quebrada.

That is to say, in Latin America, the idea of environmental justice does not sociedar target the problems of racially or economically defined minorities; it tends to identif groups that are defined territorially rather than characterized socially. The two cities have always enjoyed very close relations since they are connected by a bridge — the most widely used land route access between Argentina and Uruguay, because it is the closest one to Buenos Aires.

However, in Argentina, the issue only became public knowledge in One of the many sociedadd aspects of this situation was that the informal quest for environmental justice was conducted without a great physical mobilization.
