CIVIL SERVANTS DURING PROTEST IN RIO.
Civil servants dressed to look like Brazilian president Fernando
Henrique Cardoso and his wife Ruth protest in Rio de Janeiro, August
22, 2001, at what they called an inadequate wage offer from the
government. The government has offered a three and a half percent raise
from the start of next year. The civil servants, who have not received
a raise in six years, want a 70 percent increase.
