Country: Brazil


The situation in Brazil is alarming. The country is now into a 9-day-long nationwide truckers’ strike that is paralyzing the country. Fuel is scarce if any. Shelves are being emptied in the supermarkets. Hospitals are running low on medication and oxygen. Many smaller airports are closed to air traffic. Local transportation is cut down at least by 50 percent. Livestock is dying or being slaughtered for lack of feed. Milk is being dumped down the drains. And still no sign of relief in the negotiations.

Sadly, other groups are taking advantage of the situation to protest against the government. Some are making fires in the streets to block the road. Please pray.
