StreetNet International

StreetNet International, street vendors
StreetNet International is an alliance of street vendors launched in Durban, South Africa in 2002. Membership-based organizations (unions, co-operatives or associations) directly organizing street vendors, market vendors and/or hawkers among their members, are entitled to affiliate to StreetNet International. As of December 2018 StreetNet had 49 affiliates from countries in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Eastern Europe.

New worker stories from StreetNet: From fighting eviction and
police harassment to building a better future through credit and microloans, organized
street vendors improve their lives. Read the stories.

The aim of StreetNet is to promote local, national and international solidarity between organizations of street vendors, market vendors and hawkers (i.e. mobile vendors), stimulate the development of national alliances of such organizations, and stimulate cities around the world to adopt and implement street vendor friendly urban policies.

StreetNet focuses on two overarching issues: the right to be recognized as workers and the right to public space. StreetNet firmly supports collective negotiations between street vendors, informal traders and local governments and advocates for full participation by the workers in all matters affecting them.
