double concern days before carnival: police on strike in the states of Bahia and Rio de Janeiro

February 10, 2012 | By More


While the ongoing police strike in the state of Bahia takes its toll, a new front has just been launched, as the police forces and firefighters of the state of Rio de Janeiro have began their own strike: Police Strike by Brazilians Makes Holiday Seem a Threat.

Just a few days before carnival time, all tourists heading to carnival land are advised to keep a close eye on media reports. It is still too soon to tell whether the strike in Rio will have the devastating impact it had on Bahia. It can be assumed that the army and a special national force will fill the gap left by the state police forces.
