[BRAZIL] Feb 9th - National day of fight against the raise on the bus fares, for free fare to students and free fare to everyone.

Due to several unbelievable raises on the bus fares all over the country, we are organizing ourselves in every city that already fights against this absurdity, that fights for the student’s free pass, and also with the ones that are already fighting for a fare free public transportation to everyone. We invite every single town to take the streets on February 9th in a united demonstration occurring at the same time all over Brazil. Even the cities that didn’t suffered any bus fare raise, we ask you: Organize yourself, because if it didn’t raise yet, probably it will.
