LSR (CWI in Brazil) reporters

On 4 April, a group of civil servants in Praia Grande, Brazil, who are in struggle for a wage increase of 12.5%, occupied their trade union (linked to Força Sindical) offices in protest at the treacherous actions of the union leadership which threatened to sell out their dispute.

After five hours waiting for the union president, they were surprised by 20 henchmen and beaten in a cowardly manner. Please, send urgently messages of your solidarity with these workers against such abuse.

They mainly fight for a real increase in their wage and against the president of the union. This is their first struggle in eight years. For many of these workers, it is the first struggle of their lives.

A congressional committee voted to recommend impeaching Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff over corruption claims. The decision will intensify political struggle between parties in the governing coalition and on the streets, where mass pro and anti-Rousseff demos have taken place.
