Workers of federal and state universities demonstrates in Rio de Janeiro

Politics Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - 12 June 2012


Teachers, staff and students of federal and state universities demonstrated in Rio de Janeiro on June 12, 2012. Since today is Valentine's Day in Brazil, the motto of the demonstration was "Public Education and Health, flirt with this idea".
 

Several teachers of federal universities strikes across Brazil are asking for better salaries and work conditions, and the same occurs with teachers from the state university of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ). It is a struggle against economic and educational policy of President Dilma Rousseff and his party, the PT. The Sintufr (Union of Education Workers of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro) says that the government in the last two years presented no counterproposal and last month, through an interim measure, reduced  the salaries of doctors in university hospitals as well as other social benefits to one half.
