Brazil truckers association Abcam recommends end of strikeStaff Writer | May 28, 2018
A Brazilian truckers association behind a week-long nationwide fuel-price protest that paralyzed key sectors of Latin America's biggest economy told drivers to get back to work on Monday after the government caved in to their demands.
LatAm The Abcam association is happy now
"We are working to spread the word of a deal to all the drivers," Abcam said in its statement. "It is worth remembering that even though we are calling for an end to the blockades, not all protesters agree with that."
It was not clear by mid-day when Brazil would return to some semblance of normality.
The truckers' protest left South America's biggest city and economic hub Sao Paulo, and hundreds of communities across the country, without fuel, emptying normally gridlocked roads. Hospitals said they were running out of supplies. ■
