Dignity & Humiliation
by Guadalupe Alba García Gracilazo
Immediate restitution of her job at Supreme Court of Justice ´s Library, Argentina
Guadalupe is a person with disabilities. She is 35, a mother of a 5 years old son called Matias Ezequiel. She has been working at the National Supreme Court of Justice ´s Library in Buenos Aires since 9 years ago, in charge of the photocopies machine, regarding a special contract among the Supreme Court and the Braille Foundation. In 1997 the Braille Foundation proposed Guadalupe and another person with disabilities to be in charge of the machines, as freelancers, at the building of Supreme Court, inside the Library itself . The intention was to make it possible for them, both disable people to have an independent work for their self maintenance.
When this year the Supreme Court determined to dissolve the permission given that year to the Braille Foundation, both disable persons lost their unique medium of survival. The S. Court helped the other man, giving him a fix job at the Supreme Court Library, but they gave no help to Guadalupe Alba,. Consequently she is living the worst nightmare of poverty and humiliation since September 1st when the Director of the Library simply fired her saying “You cannot enter the Library anymore since tomorrow”. She was not previously notified of the resolution with enough time to find another job. After ten days, finally she received at home the copy of the resolution, but since September 1st she is not able to work any more at the Library, although her partner has been given a fix job to resolve his financial crisis produced as a direct consequence of Supreme Court’s resolution September 1st .-
We claim for the immediate restitution of
Guadalupe’s job at the Supreme Court of Justice ´s Library.
