Brazilians Attacked Venezuelan Refugees Border Camp

The plight of the people of Venezuela with the collapse of the economy and the crisis of government since 2015, has caused hardship for most of the population.  The impossible situation led to lack of access to cash, hospital and health services, medicines, food, water, jobs and security.  Many have left for neighbouring countries like Brazil.  After years in the border town Pacairama, the Venezuelans were attacked by their Brazilian neighbours.  The incident  was sparked off by violent assault on a Brazilian man, and the Venezuelans were blamed for it. Nearly all belongings of the Venezuelans were mostly destroyed by fire or smashed.  A protest march of Brazilians chanted for the Venezuelans to leave and chased them up a hill.  The Army were called in to bring order and calm to the situation.
