Tortosa, Spain, April 22, 2008Knotted sculptures mark a protest of the Spanish government's newly announced plans to build a water pipeline from the Ebro River to drought-stricken Barcelona.

But other regional governments are denouncing the plan, saying they will go to court to demand equal access to the Ebro.
