  • Description

    FEDERAL BRAZILIAN TROOPS AND RIO STATE MILITARY POLICE WERE CALLED INTO RIO DE JANEIRO YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) TO QUELL A DEMONSTRATION BY STUDENTS.

    THE DEMONSTRATION HAD EARLIER BEEN BANNED BY AUTHORITIES IN RIO DE JANEIRO, BUT THE STUDENTS WENT AHEAD WITH THEIR ARRANGEMENTS TO DEMONSTRATE.

    THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATION WAS ORGANISED TO PROTEST AGAINST THE ARREST OF A STUDENT LEADER, VLADIMIR PALMEIRA, AGED 23.

    THE STUDENTS MASSED AS PLANNED IN CINELANDIA SQUARE, IN THE HEART OF THE CITY. HOWEVER, THE STRONG ARMY AND POLICE COUNTERFORCE PREVENTED THE DEMONSTRATION FROM GAINING MOMENTUM.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS WERE DISPERSED, AND ALTHOUGH THERE WERE REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN NO SERIOUS INCIDENT MANY OF THE STUDENTS WERE ARRESTED.
