A molotov cocktail was launched in front of the US consulate in Rio de Janeiro late Friday in protest of the arrival of President Barack Obama, the O Globo newspaper in Rio reported. Military police reacted by firing rubber bullets into the gathering of 200 at around 18:30 local time. A CBN news reporter suffered a minor injury from the shots and traffic was blocked.
“They came after us with clubs and tear gas and attacked,” according to protestor Thiago Hastenheiter. “They chased us through the streets and started firing rounds of rubber bullets.”
Police major Fabio Alessandro of the 13th Batallion of Rio’s military police said that the protestors, all left leaning social movements associated with the Socialist Workers Party, PSTU, did not have a permit to protest near the consulate along Avenida Rio Branco and had refused to disperse from the area. They wore the ubiquitous Che Guevera T shirt and carried American flags that said Go Home Obama. Most of the protests had been peaceful until two home-made molotov cocktails were let loose in the direction of the Consulate. A guard at the Consulate was partially burned and was sent to the emergency room at Souza Aguiar Hospital.
You KNOW you’re in trouble when your own don’t like you! Perhaps D’Bama just isn’t socialist enough?
The speech in the historic plaza known as Cinelandia, in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, “is cancelled,” an embassy spokeswoman told AFP.
Obama instead will deliver remarks at Rio’s Municipal Theatre, the official said, without specifying whether it would be open to the public or exclusively for invited guests.
No explanation for the change of venue was given by the embassy. Brazilian authorities have laid out a heavy security presence for Obama’s two-day visit to South America’s largest nation, and police in Rio had closed numerous streets from midnight Thursday in preparation.
On Thursday, members of an advance US security team were seen inspecting the surroundings of Cinelandia, where anti-US banners could be seen hanging from a road-side fence.
In a rather odd way, this is actually pretty funny. Not that I want any harm to come to ol’ D’Bama, but the idea he isn’t adored around the world, like he believes himself to be, is quite amusing. Perhaps he should have stayed at home and taken care of serious business in THIS country, instead of gallivanting off, trying to impress a bunch of foreigners for “spring break”? I wonder how many of the beautiful places, right here in the U.S. of A. he has bothered to take his family to see? Or is this country not good enough for the globe trotters?
Israeli police say Hamas militants in Gaza have launched the heaviest shelling in more than two years on Israeli border communities.
A Gaza Health Ministry official said Israel’s subsequent airstrikes killed a member of Hamas and injured two others.
The bad guys fire 50 rockets at the communities. Israel retaliates, as most would, if they had any sense. Yet who is going to be blamed? Why Israel, of course! Maybe if Hamas would stop trying to annialate the Israelis, they stop shooting back? Just a thought.
