Angry Rio de Janeiro: heroes are treated like criminals (firefighters arrested)!

Rio de Janeiro: heroes are treated like criminals



The world needs to see this (please disclose to journalists of your countries). Here's how the government of Rio de Janeiro treats its heroes:

For months firefighters from Rio de Janeiro, receiving the worst salary among all states in Brazil (about U.S. $ 500/month), have been protesting for better wages and working conditions.

On Friday they decided to take the headquarters of the corporation, taking along their wives and children. In response, the state governor, Sergio Cabral, who commanded the elite squad of police broke into the barracks, firing rifle shots and tear gas. Nearly 500 firefighters were arrested, and the governor still refusing to negotiate. The dictatorship is back!

This is the Rio de Janeiro which will host the next World Cup and the Olympics 2016!

The fight for rights is unfortunately still to be won in most places around the world, especially in those countries where economic "liberalism" has or is still taking its toll. Not knowing how the brazilian politic system works, I wonder what a state governor can risk before central government for such behaviour.

If there is anything we can do to support them, please tell us.

What a sad story you have posted!
I feel for them as I am a firefighter as well...
In Peru, where I live, firefighters are 100% volunteers... at least they don't have to fight the government for wages and compensation. Instead, we fight for better resources and some decent equipment.
Common denominator is the popularity of firemen amongst the population, contrary to the apathy shown by governments....
My thoughts go to these brothers and sisters in Brazil

Thumbs up Brazil's soccer champion supports Rio firefighters claims

Vasco da Gama soccer team (champion of Brazil Cup 2011) and their supporters march in downtown Rio de Janeiro shouting slogans in support of the claim of Firefighters for better wages and working conditions and seeking the release of the military arrested. They shouts (in Portuguese) the slogans "oh... respect the fireghters!" and "oh... free the firefighters!".

Smile Latest news: FIREFIGHTERS RELEASED!

Firefighters were released! But still be prosecuted for mutiny ...

The protests for better wages and working conditions continue, and soon the police will join them!

Tomorrow there will be a big march on the edge of Copacabana, starting from the front of the Copacabana Palace Hotel.

I Already extended a red flag (not of communism but the red of Fire Department) on my balcony in support.

Firefighters prisoners sign a charter of release, but still insist in protest:

You can forget about Brazil and just concentrate on your country. A priority case for France is to finally embrace and settle their Gypsy population instead of expelling them. Unlike Spain, France has continued it's hard-line policy of not assimilating their Gypsy population.

I saw the show, Black in Latin America on PBS last night. Part of the documentary focused on the history of Afro-Peruvians. While Peru is the only Latin American country to have apologized to its black community for centuries of abuse and discrimination, they still treat them as a marginalized group.

I'm from Brazil and I must say that the wage for firefighters is way too low for a "developed" contry, but we have to remember that even though Brazil is a rich country the social differences are huge. I just think that the riot made by firefighters caused many deaths becouse there were almost no crew available for help during emergencies in many states (not only in Rio) and some airports had to shut down operations due to the lack of firefighters. But still, why is this subject in a aircraft model forum?

Because in "General Squawk Talk" we can discuss anything. I think it's wrong not to provide basic services like fire fighting, but everyone has to agree that fire fighters need to be treated well, have sufficient pay and the best equipment possible to do their job. It's a terrible job, and very dangerous.

I don't know why aviationcombr creates threads about Brazil's problems on this forum. I stay informed about the events in my country as well as others, but other than replying to threads about natural disasters, I have no need to push any agenda. Additionally, aviationcombr rarely replies to others who post on his threads. So I don't care.
