    UPM conflict: Argentine protestors will not be allowed to cross to Uruguay, warn officials

    A protest march picture of the San Martin river linking Argentina with Uruguay: a repeat on Sunday?

    Residents from Gualeguaychú, Argentina confirmed that on Sunday they will attempt crossing an international bridge to Uruguay to protest the production expansion of the pulp mill Botnia/UPM, authorized by the government of President Jose Mujica. This despite the fact Uruguayan officials anticipated that at the most “eight or nine” Argentine officials and representatives from the protestors will be allowed to meet with their Uruguayan counterparts to discuss the situation.
