Thousands of public workers stormed Rio de Janeiro’s legislative assembly on Tuesday, protesting against proposed austerity measures that include salary cuts. At first, crowds demonstrated against the planned measures in front of the assembly, chanting slogans. Demonstrators then managed to break into the building, wrecking windows, doors, and some rooms.
