Three former employees of Varig airline that has declared bankruptcy, pitched in the arrivals hall of the airport Santos Dumont in Rio de Janeiro, on hunger strike. The former employees are retired and one is already without food for eight days.

Approximately ten thousand employees of the former airline and Transbrasil, are fighting for seven years in court to receive his pension fund deposits Aerus. According to the retired, the money that was collected was not passed to the Aerus, that’s why the fund has no verb.

To endure all this time without eating, protesters drink water and coconut water, but they point out that the lack of suitable feed also brings fatigue, but the hard floor and the noise from the airport is also not conducive to rest.
