Brazilian police greet tourists with 'Welcome to Hell' sign at Rio airport
Rio's mayor says the Olympics could be a 'big failure' due to financial crisis
Brazilian emergency responders have a message for travelers arriving to the city just ahead of the 2016 Olympics: “Welcome to hell”.
The photo, shared across social media platforms, is generating concern over whether or not Brazil is ready to host the Olympic Games - exacerbated by ongoing trouble stemming from the Zika virus plaguing the country.
“Police and firefighters don't get paid, whoever comes to Rio de Janeiro will not be safe,” the sign reads.
Another sign outside of the airport read, “Welcome, we don’t have hospitals!”
Some 300 police held a rally on Monday rallied to protest unpaid wages and unsatisfactory working conditions. Some even claimed to have not received proper equipment for their jobs - down to basics such as gasoline for cars - and they lack even some of the most necessary of hygienic provisions.
