BUENOS AIRES, Mar 30 (IPS) – While a dispute between Argentina and Uruguay over a pulp mill simmers on, a new environmental conflict over a border river is taking shape, this time involving a hydroelectric dam between Argentina and Brazil.

“I hope we can create a movement to block this new dam,” Argentine lawmaker Timoteo Llera, a former mayor of the northeastern city of Puerto Iguazú, told IPS.
