Brazil police unions protest pension reform, repelled with tear gas

BRASILIA, April 18 (Reuters) - Congressional police in riot gear used tear gas to drive back hundreds of members of police unions who tried to invade the Brazilian legislature on Tuesday to protest a pension reform bill that would cut back their benefits.

The demonstrators broke glass doors of the modernistic Congress building before being pushed back in a violent clash that highlighted the unpopularity of the pension reform President Michel Temer’s government is proposing to balance Brazil’s overdrawn public accounts.
