Four people got run over while participating in a July 1, 2013 protest on the Anhanguera highway in the Jundiaí area of São Paulo, Brazil. The accident was caused by a semi truck that was unable to stop in time and rear ended a tow truck.
I have to say that in this case the protesters were truly asking for it. The semi could not stop on a dime and the tow truck was stopped because the protesters were blocking its passage. With a car on its bed, it had a place to go so the driver wouldn’t stop in the middle of the highway if he was able to continue on his way.
This is just a bad way to go about protesting. Truck drivers are working class people trying to earn a buck to feed their families. They are not why corruption or poverty exist. Preventing them from doing their jobs does not aid in achieving positive changes in the society in any way.
