  • 0.7% of the profits for urban development - a new goal for FIFA?
    life is to make an honest living to support themselves and to feed and educate their children Many street vendors work 7 days a week with a gruelling working day of 12 14 hours in order to make between SAR 150 200 per day or USD 18 25 from which they must also pay transport to work fees for licenses and storage facilities or informal night watchmen I m not feeling all right about the world cup this event is taking the business away from the streets and the rules of the FIFA World Cup are very strict to us street vendors We cannot be close to the stadium and we are not allowed to sell in the stadium I feel that we street vendors do not have a part in the World Cup it is not for us It is okay if the World Cup never comes here again because we do not benefit from it There are boundaries and I do not think I can get any closer to the stadium It is very unfortunate for me Majola Nelson Mandela Street Vendors Association Port Elizabeth Hey you know you do not feel nice about the World Cup when you do not have money Everything is about money these days right I really feel that rich people are getting richer from this World Cup And the poor people do not benefit from what the rich people get I will not benefit from the trade during the World Cup not at all Veronica Street Vendor Govan Mbeki Street Port Elizabeth According to the FIFA spokesperson Nicolas Maingot the provisional estimate for FIFA s income from the South African World Cup is USD 3 2 billion or ZAR 24 billion The CEO of the Local Organising Committee Danny Jordan estimates that the South African Football Association will make up to USD 200 million or ZAR 1 5 billion While FIFA has explained that up to 75 of its revenue will be earmarked for football development programmes StreetNet International asks why cannot some of these funds be earmarked for development programmes for street vendors and informal traders They deserve some form of compensation for their loss of income The United Nations Millennium Development Goals include a goal that all governments set aside 0 7 of Gross Domestic Product for international development programmes The South African government has invested vast sums in the construction of the new stadiums infrastructure transport systems and security services for the World Cup while many urban renewal programmes education services hospitals and health programmes have suffered But it is street vendors and informal traders who suffer the direct consequences of the exclusion zones The Human Sciences Research Council of South Africa estimates that street vending and informal trading accounts for 7 of GDP For more information contact Lou Haysom at info streetnet org za StreetNet International 27 031 3074038 World Class Cities for All Brazil Portuguese Blog There is also a portuguese version of the Blog where one

  • The Elders call for fair play for street vendors
    second largest share of these jobs after home based workers and women account for the majority of street vendors in many countries in Africa Most of these women work informally and have no access to social protection for themselves or their children Street vendors provide a valuable service to millions of poor people who cannot afford to buy from retail stores Unfortunately in today s political and economic climate street vendors do not fit into most modernising cities concept of a World Class City Many modernising cities pre occupied with competing for World Class City status tend not to integrate informal workers such as street vendors in their urban planning and economic development strategies This effect is even more apparent when a city hosts a large sporting event such as the FIFA World Cup currently taking place in South Africa or the upcoming Commonwealth Games taking place in Delhi India Often in their bid to clean up their cities for an international event the cities working poor suffer the most Often informal settlements and markets are taken down to make way for new infrastructure and the people who live and work in those areas are displaced Unfortunately for street vendors this is the reality we see in South Africa today surrounding the FIFA World Cup In addition the introduction of exclusion zones around stadiums and fan parks hosting FIFA events has disillusioned local street vendors who had hoped that working during the World Cup would help improve the financial situation for their families Instead not only have they been denied the right to vend near FIFA events but even if their stall is located within the exclusion zone or if they have traditionally sold in the zone for years they cannot do so while official events are taking place As a result many vendors will actually suffer more economic hardship because of the World Cup rather than benefit from it I and my fellow Elder Mary Robinson have voiced our concerns regarding this situation to officials at FIFA and have offered to meet with the FIFA President to discuss a cohesive and longer term strategy We do hope this offer will be accepted To find out more about street vendors and the World Class Cities for All campaign please visit the websites of StreetNet International and Women in Informal Employment Globalizing and Organizing WIEGO World Class Cities for All Brazil Portuguese Blog There is also a portuguese version of the Blog where one can access personal updates on news and events It can be found on this link http streetnetbrasil wordpress com Latest Additions Cambodian Trade Unions oppose adoption of a new Trade Union Law Online crowd funding a new experiment of StreetNet International StreetNet affiliate from Azerbaijan helps street vendors in villages and promotes ILO Recommendation 204 Free Trade Unions of Ukraine marked a World Day for Decent Work Nothing for us Without Us NewsBox INDIA DP is irreparable scrap it say activists Times of India 10 April 2015
