Eugenio Lopez y Lopez

Eugenio Lopez y Lopez, was an active member of  ‘San Gregorio Piedra Parada Estate Former Workersmovement‘, a NGO created in 2008 with the objective of defending the rights of the former workers of San Gregorio Piedra Parada Estate company.

For 30 years, Eugenio Lopez y Lopez and his colleagues had contributed money for social security to the company which was meant to transfer that money to the responsible authorities. But in reality, that money had never been transferred and as consequence those former workers could not benefit from any social welfare once they stopped working in that company.
