Book

Scapepigging: H1N1

Published on 1 June 2010

The final part of the chapter describes the unfolding waste disposal crisis in Cairo as a direct outcome of the culling policy. It discusses how the very policy that was advocated as a measure to protect Egyptian citizens’ health was directly responsible for creating a major health hazard. It discusses how the garbage collectors’ narrative spoke of their agency and how their marginalization not only had implications for themselves but for the entire city of Cairo.
