Today is a very special day for the people that day after day get up to give their best in our struggles, each and every one of the waste pickers in the region, from different countries.
Today is still very far from being the day of happiness which all human beings yearn for, but certainly, bringing to light and to memory the tragic events that happened 26 years ago makes us reflect better on where we are today.
In the name of the National Association of Waste Pickers of Colombia, we would like to send you special greetings and blessings and a big hug.
En esperant une bonne journée du 1er mars 2013 a tous les recuperateurs en lutte!
