The Federation of Waste Pickers of Argentina (FACCYR) is working to highlight the neglect of the barrio La Tosquera and the families who live close to the open dump in San Pedro, Province of Buenos Aires. They demand improvements in waste pickers working conditions. For this reason, they marched in June demanding the fulfillment of the agreement made by the local government. The government still has not adopted any concrete measures.
