Defence of the rights of street workers through a publicized report compiling violations of their rights and humanising them through life stories, organising experiences and international comparisons.

Good Practice:

Defence of the rights of street workers through a publicized report compiling violations of their rights and humanising them through life stories, organising experiences and international comparisons. The report was used to reverse the negative image of street workers by defending and legitimating their cause and to provide a foundation for Public Civil Action (Brazil).

Lesson learned:

The individualistic character of street workers and the tradition of corruption, violence and discredit included in most of the workers organisations (unions and associations) needs to be addressed for success in improving the well-being of street workers. Their relationships were continually overshadowed by actions for some political electoral benefit, extortion and other corruption mechanisms on the part of civil servants and the police.
