Chubut orders to release routes of Dragon Hill
Chubut, July 3, 2012
Chubut justice ordered the release of the routes leading to the most important hydrocarbon reservoir in the country, known as Dragon Hill, where unionists disrupt traffic for weeks.
The federal judge in Comodoro Rivadavia, Eva Parcio, ordered the National Highway 3 and the provincial 26 and 39 to be released after protests being conducted by the group called “The Dragons”, a branch of UOCRA operating in Chubut.
For eviction, the court ordered the actions of the police in the province, increasing tension within the pickets.
“We will make use of public force to the extent necessary and applying techniques of deterrence to prevent the use of violence”, said the provincial authorities.
And they added: “The Provincial Police shall take precautions to ensure the constitutional right to free movement on the roads of the country”.
