Safety Secretary Sergio Berni led the intervention after the usurpation of land from the Navy in the capital of Santa Cruz province.
The operation was conducted by gendarmerie and the army on the lands that were usurped yesterday .
At the site there are six army trucks , four of Gendarmerie and Prefecture. The government would build there 250 homes and after the usurpation the complaint was made by Municipality to the Federal Court.
Rio Gallegos Mayor Raul Cantín blamed the provincial executive : ” If I have to put a name to this is called the October 27 elections. I think the provincial government thinks this way will win votes . They are worried sick because obviously the numbers are not for them.”
Local reports said there are 3,000 usurped fractions of land with about 500 people .
