Reclaimers (waste pickers) from 7 regions of the City of Joburg (Johannesburg, South Africa) marched to protest a new source segregation program which could threaten their livelihoods.

Waste pickers marched to the waste management service provider, Pikitup where Eva Mokoena presented a Memorandum of Demands to the Managing Director of Pikitup on behalf of the Interim Joburg Reclaimers Committee.
