Brazil: Protest Over Higher Bus Fares Erupt in 3 Cities
By SIMON ROMERO JAN. 8, 2016

Protests flared in the cities of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte on Friday night over increases in bus fares, reflecting resentment over efforts by the municipal authorities to cover budget shortfalls during Brazil’s most severe economic crisis in decades.


 Anti-riot police units clashed with protesters in downtown São Paulo. The unrest drew comparisons to the much larger demonstrations that shook cities across Brazil in 2013, which also crystallized over increases in bus fares. Some of the demonstrators in São Paulo destroyed buses, ransacked banking offices and threw rocks and bottles at the police, who used tear gas. Clashes also erupted between the police and protesters in downtown Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil’s Olympic Catastrophe
Vanessa Barbara JULY 1, 2016
 
Can Rio pull off the Games with only weeks to go?
...

RIO DE JANEIRO — IT’S official: The Olympic Games in Rio are an unnatural disaster.

On June 17, fewer than 50 days before the start of the Games, the state of Rio de Janeiro declared a “state of public calamity.” A financial crisis is preventing the state from honoring its commitments to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the governor said. That crisis is so severe, he said, it could eventually bring about “a total collapse in public security, health, education, mobility and environmental management.” The authorities are now authorized to ration essential public services and the state is eligible for emergency funds from the federal government.

Measures like these are usually taken for an earthquake or a flood. But the Olympics are a man-made, foreseeable, preventable catastrophe.

I went to Rio recently to see how preparations for the Games are going. Spoiler: not well. The city is a huge construction site. Bricks and pipes are piled everywhere; a few workers lazily push wheelbarrows as if the Games were scheduled for 2017. Nobody knows what the construction sites will become, not even the people working on them: “It’s for the Olympics” was the unanimous reply, followed by speculation about “tents for the judging panels of volleyball or soccer, I guess.”

Looting, rape and murders have been reported on the streets of Brazil after the military police in Espírito Santo went on strike.

The chaos has been compared to the 2014 thriller film The Purge where a lawless night of terror leads to horrific crimes.

With officers staging a walk-out over conditions, thugs are running riot in Brazil, with people running rampant with guns and machetes, shops being robbed, buses set on fire and dead bodies are left lying in the street.

The harrowing scenes are being reported from all around the state, and one resident told Political Outsource: 'The thugs are randomly shooting at anyone who passes the street in Espírito Santo.

'My God what is happening.'

Schools have been closed and even football matches cancelled in the affected areas due to the lack of security, which has meant many people are refusing to even venture outdoors.

'I won't even leave my house today," one Brazilian resident in Espirato Santo told Political Outsource.

The rioting, worldwide, is fomented and moved along in every way possible.  It serves two purposes.

1.  It brings about the chaos, to create order out of, with the heavy hand of oppression being the fix.
2.  It keeps the rioting focused on trivial things (compared), rather than the master controllers who bring it about (purposely).  These rioting hoards are exactly what the controllers fear coming after themselves, as has happened in the past.  So, they control it and keep it away from themselves.

Millions return to poverty in Brazil, eroding ‘boom’ decade
By PETER PRENGAMAN, SARAH DiLORENZO and DANIEL TRIELLI

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — When Leticia Miranda had a job selling newspapers on the streets, she earned about $160 a month, just enough to pay for a tiny apartment she shared with her 8-year-old son in a poor neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro.

When she lost her job about six months ago amid Brazil’s worst economic crisis in decades, Miranda had no choice but to move to an abandoned building where several hundred people were already living. All of her possessions — a bed, a fridge, a stove and some clothes — have been jammed into a small room that like all the others in the building has windows with no glass. Residents bathe in large garbage cans filled with water and do their best to live with the stench of mountains of trash and rummaging pigs in the center of the building.

...

Between 2004 and 2014, tens of millions of Brazilians emerged from poverty and the country was often cited as an example for the world.
High prices for the country’s raw materials and newly developed oil resources helped finance social welfare programs that put money into the pockets of the poorest.

But that trend has been reversed over the last two years due to the deepest recession in Brazil’s history and cuts to the subsidy programs, raising the specter that this continent-sized nation has lost its way in addressing wide inequalities that go back to colonial times.

“Many people who had risen out of poverty, and even those who had risen into the middle class, have fallen back,” said Monica de Bolle, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Peterson Institute for International Economics.

The World Bank estimates about 28.6 million Brazilians moved out of poverty between 2004 and 2014. But the bank estimates that from the start of 2016 to the end of this year, 2.5 million to 3.6 million will have fallen back below the poverty line of 140 Brazilian reais per month, about $44 at current exchange rates.

Those figures are likely underestimates, de Bolle said, and they don’t capture the fact that many lower-middle class Brazilians who gained ground during the boom years have since slid back closer to poverty.
...

A year after hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics, Rio is so broke that thousands of public workers are not being paid, or are being paid late in installments. Many budget items, from garbage collection to a community policing program, have been sharply reduced.
