Peru New Manifesto Campaign in Lima starting soon
FEDEVAL, StreetNet's affiliate in Peru has sent in a proposal to start up the New Manifesto campaign in Lima in 13 districts The campaign is planned to start soon and will include a set of planning meetings, the production of leaflets and media releases, mobilisations in some of the main squares of Lima and a set of focus group discussions to collect the views and opinions of market and street vendors on a wide range of issues which impact on their lives, including licencing, storage, and social security. Manuel Sulca, the General Secretary of FEDEVAL said that the New Manifesto campaign is very important in Peru because it will help sensitise the local authorities about the situation of their sector. The international new Manifesto will help Lima's street vendors see that they are not alone in the world.
