    Description:

    The action in this arpillera takes place on the streets. A group of women and men are demonstrating to express their immediate needs. They are marching together and carry two banners. One says: "We demand secure work" and the other reads "Solution to our problems." Instead of being listened to, they are being sprayed with water by a police car so that they disperse. Two policemen are pulling a person by the hair and beating him/her. Another group carries a banner saying: "No to repression." We also see people looking at what is going on from the windows of the neighbouring flats.
