Dozens of Brazilian municipalities celebrate no carnival because of the recession

Dozens of Brazilian municipalities celebrate no carnival because of the recession

The ongoing recession also depends this year as a shadow over the carnival celebrations. Already some fifty municipalities across the country have the whole party must cancel due to financial problems.

They should have the budget for carnival to spend on urgent issues such as, for example, a new ambulance, reporting to Brazilian media.

The most famous and largest feestvierder, Rio de Janeiro, the city where the mayor says this year at least a billion dollars (940 million euros) deficit. Rio de Janeiro is also the capital of the homonymous state, where the shortfall is six times higher at risk of dropping out.

The carnival of Rio will not be cancelled, but there are far fewer processions than last year.

Many carioca’s, as the residents are called, thinking anxiously back to the politiestaking in the neighbouring state of holy spirit Santo. That led this month to a wave of crime, and put the capital Vitória almost lamb.

The news site O Globo reports Monday that besides need also fear of crime municipalities to cancellation of celebrations brings.

Pollitiestaking

The wave of violence in Vitória, where an estimated more than 140 people by violence to the life, has sixteen places in the land of (holy spirit Santo) led the carnival.

Also in Rio are public servants such as police officers, little and often paid late. A wild politiestaking in Rio is not inconceivable and, therefore, there are nine thousand soldiers to the city for the event the agents in the coming carnavalsweekend for actions to choose.
