Message from FEDEVAL
To the Workers of Small Businesses (Street Vendors) from Lima surrounds.
We reject and repudiate the repressive attitude being taken by the Municipality of Lima against these workers.
Most of these workers are women, who do not have a legal backing to protect their work and Social Rights: Women suffering exclusion and discrimination by the Municipal Authority; from the Media; and from Civil Society sectors; all of them do not recognise the quality of worker and citizens; they only brand us "hawkers" contemptuously.
