Subject: Re: MILLIONS PROTEST in Rio de Janeiro NOW !!
Hi grant, I’m in Rio now, the show I’m with cancelled the Brasilia leg of the tour because the people trashed Parliament House there and have been rioting.
Downtown here in Rio has been blocked off with shitloads of anti gov action going on. I’ve spoken to locals and they’ve had it, sick of gov corruption and high taxes while poverty and low wages predominate. I may go downtown with locals on my day off to get some pics and join them. I’ll post a big update on all the appropriate FB groups in a couple of hours.
