Yesterday downtown Rio de Janeiro was witness of another raid of Guarda Municipal against street peddlers. Almost every corner of downtown streets are occupied by city policemen equiped with riot gear. Clashes between them and street peddlers are frequent. Usually peddlers are cowardly beaten by guards.
The sequence of photos shows a street peddler being chased and arrested by guards. Please, forward these pictures Web wide and help me to make public oppression against popular workers in Brazil.
