Rio police protest lack of salaries, toilet paper

Civil police officers threatening to go on strike demonstrate against the government for arrears in their salary payments, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 27, 2016Police in Rio de Janeiro protested Monday against late payment of salaries and a lack of equipment ranging from car fuel to toilet paper as the Brazilian city prepares to host the Olympic Games. About 300 police clad in black T-shirts stood on the steps of the Rio de Janeiro state assembly to denounce what they said had been their abandonment ahead of the Olympics, which start on August 5. “The police’s priority is the people, the government’s priority is the Olympics,” read one banner at the rare public display of anger by a force that finds itself in the midst of both a state budget crisis and a lethal surge in criminal activity.
