Panel SA: MTST protests against hunger in a luxury mall in São Paulo


Members of the MTST (Homeless Workers Movement) started a demonstration this Wednesday (8) at the Iguatemi mall, one of the most luxurious in the capital.

The group protests against hunger. The problem affected 33 million Brazilians, according to a survey released this Wednesday by the Penssan Network (Brazilian Network for Research in Food and Nutrition Sovereignty and Security) and carried out by the Vox Populi Institute.

Protesters occupied the mall’s food court carrying banners with words like “hunger” and “cooking gas”.

They also carried pieces of bones, a reference to the carcasses that Brazilians began to look for in butcher shops.

Some shopkeepers reported that they closed their doors because they were afraid of riots.

Last year, the MTST demonstrated at the headquarters of the São Paulo Stock Exchange (B3), in the central region of the capital, also to protest against the hunger that affects the country.
