Truckers are on strike, asking petrobras to lower the price of gasoline, among other things.
Many states and cities are fucked up as a result, shelves everywhere are emptying nothing is moving no food nothing. Stores raising their prices to capitalize on demand, police getting cars off the roads to conserve fuel, people running out of food etc
Major highways blocked by the truckers, can’t get by
Will post some articles later but holy shit. Dangerous game. Taking on oil companies is not historically wise, lol. Lots of innocents suffering the whole country can shut down. Who will give in first? Can the oil companies afford to allow a precedent where such a mass strike can boss them around? Will the truckers hold until people start starving and cant work? Will the army have to get involved ?
Interesting situation. Edge, are you affected by this? My wife’s family waited several hours today just to has up their car, supermarket shelves getting empty etc
Brazil is great but what a mess sometimes
- Yes. I live close to the center of the city that where we got the commerce.But super-markets are getting really empti. Very little food. And since its a insland, the place is very slow today.
