Hundreds demonstrate against proposal to reform Brazil's social security system

6 December 2017

Hundreds of Brazilians demonstrated yesterday against a government plan to pass pension reform. The demonstration was led by Brazil's Homeless Workers' Movement as they denounced the proposal to reform Brazil's social security system. The leader of MST said they would bring the country to a standstill if Congress moved to vote on the plan. The reform is seen as important to shoring up Brazil's fiscal health.
