On March 21stof 2019, the Municipality of Berazategui, Argentina, passed an ordinance through which they would ban any animal-drawn carts in the whole district. This ordinance would mainly affect wastepickers since they work with them. Taking this ban as a wastepickers’ labour persecution, on May 26th, waste pickers appealed the ordinance and won. The success on the court might be shorter than expected since as announced by the Municipality, they would fight back. The approval of the ordinance could expose waste pickers and their families to a loss of their livelihoods and the labour rights they have worked so hard to gain.
