The environmental conflict emerged around the construction of an industrial port in Granadilla de Abona (Tenerife) from the moment when it was boosted by the local political and business elites. This issue has generated a widespread unrest in large networks and critical sectors of the island. This discontent unleashed a huge wave of protests against the construction of this major infrastructure that have extended until 2010. This article begins by questioning the reasons for this unprecedented social mobilization. The thesis of this paper is that, without favourable political opportunities for this mobilization, it is the great regularity of civic activism alongside organizational strength, combined with a social and successful Speech Movement that has enabled this ample mobilization to hold on over the years.
