Video on global threats to waste pickers’ work

RECYCLERS IN LEBANON ARE NOT DISPOSABLE!
The Global Alliance of Waste Pickers stands in solidarity with fellow recyclers in Lebanon in these difficult times.
The explosion in Beirut exposed them to worse conditions of vulnerability, abandonment and more abuse than they had been suffering since the beginning of the pandemic. Especially to migrant workers.
We denounce the failure of the multinational company RAMCO to pay the nearly 200 recyclers, we call for their prompt repatriation for the ones who wish to be repatriated to the embassies of Bangladesh, Indonesia and Egypt, and advocate for a better recovery of recyclers infected with COVID 19.
