Thousands of people hit the streets of Sao Paulo on Friday in a general strike against Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's proposed pension reforms.
The government is seeking to raise the minimum retirement age to 65 for men and 62 for women as well as workers' pension contributions.
The protesters — which were comprised of numerous trade unions and left-wing organisations — displayed numerous... Еще banners and placards, denouncing the president and demanding better living conditions. They maintain that the planned pension reforms would only hurt the poor population of the country.
