Young man lying down on a couch, reading a book at the main reception/entrance area or the Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ).
Camping barracks, personal items, all indicate that the movement ‘Occupy UERJ’ continues. It is not only the University staff that goes on strike, here the students also adhere to the cause. It is not uncommon to hear that scholarship payments were delayed and that minimum conditions for studying are not being met by the government.
Sad but true.
There is even a Facebook page for the movement in case you are interested in knowing more and seeing other images.
Meanwhile the Olympic Games continue elsewhere…
