Indians Ejected from Rio Museum Being Razed for Olympics

Police on Friday forcibly ejected some 30 indigenous activists and supporters from Rio’s former Indian Museum located next to the Maracana stadium, the venue for the 2014 World Cup final.

As the city’s shock police battalion carried out the assault, supporters of the activists who were outside the building tried to intervene but were dispersed with tear gas.

Demonstrators chanted “murderers, fascists,” as the operation took place.
