Geneva – ILO Conference, Geneva – “Bring local Government into global economic recovery plans”

5 June 2009

In the wake of mass protests against the proposed forced relocation of 7000 – 10 000 informal workers in and around the Warwick Junction Early Morning Market, a call was made by the International Co-ordinator of StreetNet International on behalf of WIEGO (Women in Informal Employment: Globalising and Organising) at the 98th session of the International Labour Conference of the ILO to bring local governments into global economic crisis recovery plans. (see similar call above, made at ILO to the Plenary, on the 12 of June, 2009)
