Riot police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse masked protesters in Rio de Janeiro


Description:

Riot police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse masked protesters in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, as demonstrations continued throughout Brazil. Unions are demanding better work conditions and tougher government measures to tackle inflation. Tens of thousands of union members marched throughout the country, blocking roads and grinding traffic to a crawl in dozens of cities. Bus drivers, metal workers and other unionized workers took to the streets as part of a one-day strike. Labor leaders are pushing for workers' rights to take center stage in the national debate which emerged after huge protests rocked the country last month, Reuters reported. http://rt.com/
