Toilets protest at Brazil beach demands basic sanitation
Activists sat on toilets along Rio de Janeiro’s famed Ipanema beach on Saturday to protest against the lack of basic sanitation in the Brazilian city.
Nearly 70 percent of Rio’s sewage is untreated and allowed to flow into iconic beaches such as Copacabana, Ipanema and the Guanabara Bay.
Rio’s state government has pledged that the city’s waterways will be clean in time for the 2016 Olympics.
