Brazil: Sao Paulo subway workers open gates

At midnight, August 1st, the subway workers of Sao Paulo struck for better working conditions.

Since the begining of the year, the company along with allies in media and government have proclaimed trasportation as a public right that would be infringed on by a strike.

The workers in assembly responded by opening the faregates to demonstrate the hypocracy of the companies rhetoric in the face of recent toll increases
