In dialogue with Diario UNO, from the entity they added that several residents of the department promised to participate and that, next to the camera, Juan Manuel Ojeda himself will be the one to lead the mobilization. “We go directly to the Rosada. Surely it will be in two more weeks, because the next one is the census holiday, “said the head of the business organization Gustavo Miras.
Mining also entered the claim and in fact there will be a second caravan that will head towards the Great Mendoza. As they advanced, it will seek to “make residents aware of why mining should be done in the department”. A way to achieve the much talked about social license, based on explanations and good communication about what this mining advance would imply.

What does Malargüe ask for around Portezuelo: mining
The request they submitted has a new look: They ask the President to allow the project to be awarded and, if a complementary study is needed (as Alberto Fernández himself already announced in La Pampa), this could be done while the work is already underway -and not before-.
this option is almost ruled out by the Suarez governmentwhose officials not only boasted for days of not having made progress in awarding the work to construction companies, but also, since 2020, They have been announcing that they would not take a single step until they had legal certainty to be able to do it.
With the support of Ojeda, the businessmen stated that it is not “mining or the hydroelectric dam”, but They seek the realization of both possibilities. “We believe in the mining, oil, road, livestock, agricultural, energy and tourism development of Malargüe, but without this being a barter currency in exchange for not building Portezuelo del viento”, they affirmed.
By last, they sent a message to those who already think about changing in the future the 1,023 million dollars that Nation should send and they were for Portezuelo. They even dedicated the final paragraphs to asking for the support of the people of Mendoza in favor of the work, and not to speculate about the destination of the foreign currency, noting that they come from an agreement that they considered historic for Mendoza.

They go for the original project
After the slap in the face that Alberto’s words meant in General Pico, the idea of making a smaller work resurfaced. It would be upstream, without modifying routes and without having to relocate the population of Las Loicas. A project that is not new and that was even part of the initial plans to regulate the Rio Grande. However, it is not the idea that the Malargüinos expressed in the document.
Specifically, they stated that the intended execution remains the original, the one budgeted by the UTE at 989 million dollars in the first instance – and then reduced by claim of the Executive. In fact, the letter specifies that are requesting all the complementary works that have already been tendered by the Government.
This would imply two things: first, that the possibilities and magnitude of the works would not change too much for the construction companies. Second, that La Pampa’s claims would continue to threaten the possibilities of making it a reality, because they would remain as they are. Both those carried out in Coirco itself, and those taken to the Supreme Court of Justice, that could bind it with equal or greater force than the committee of provinces.
At the closing of the document, all the entities that came together to prepare and sign it were listed. There the chambers of commerce, industry, livestock and mining worked; together with the communal Executive and the gas and oil advisory councils, in addition to different neighborhood organizations. They all closed with an expression of desire: “For Malargüe, Portezuelo yes”.
