Seasonal workers who harvest peppers demonstrate in Espelette

About thirty people demonstrated in the streets of Espelette at the end of the afternoon on Tuesday August 30. These are seasonal workers recruited for the pepper harvest. Half a dozen producers came to support them because they demanded better accommodation conditions. These seasonal workers lived in caravans on flood-prone land in Ustaritz. The gendarmes therefore dislodged them for security reasons. But for the moment these employees have not found permanent housing and are asking for help to find a solution.
