Brazil: Opposition continues to bus fare hike

Commuters protested an increase of the municipal bus fare in Sao Paulo on Tuesday. After the price hike was made official on Sunday, civic groups quickly moved to organise demonstrations. Critics argue that the bus fare increase of 4 to 4.3 Brazilian Reals (US$1.07-1.13), or 7.5 per cent, is twice that of inflation — 3.59 per cent. The march went ahead despite attempts by Sao Paulo... Еще Governor Joao Doria to tighten the law around holding demonstrations. A new law forbidding people from wear masks or covering their faces was largely ignored by the crowd.
