WAHREN, Juan. Social Movements and disputes for territories: Work and authonomy experiences in the Unemployed Workers Union of General Mosconi in Salta. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.19. ISSN 1514-6871.

The Unemployed Workers Union of General Mosconi (UTD) began in the middle of ´90 years in a small town with a lot of natural resources, principally hydrocarbons. The UTD was one of the first "piqueteros" (Unemployed Workers who make pickets in the routes) organization Their demands were to recover their olds works in the state oil company (Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales) that was sale to private capitals (Repsol from Spain). With the years and collective actions, this social movement incorporated new demands in defense of the natural resources (hydrocarbons as well land, forest, water, biodiversity, etc.) and now building a significant territory influence in the region thought the developing of different productive, communitarian and cultural auto self-projects. In this article we analyze the complex relations between the different social actors that disputes these new territory construction: the social movements, the State and the Oil companies that have projects in the region.
