The protest by more than 100 emergency services workers, including firefighters, took place in the arrival hall at Galeao International Airport, which will be a key entry point for the expected half-million tourists to the Games starting August 5. Officers held up a banner reading: "Welcome to hell. Police and firefighters don't get paid, whoever comes to Rio will not be safe."

Mannequins dressed in uniform were laid out on the floor to represent the more than 50 officers killed in Rio so far this year.
