Thousands marched in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro on Friday, in protest against President Jair Bolsonaro's proposed overhaul of the pension system.

Workers and unions took part in the rally in the central square of Cinelandia, waving a variety of banners and flags. A similar protest was held on the same day in Sao Paulo.

Bolsonaro's reform aims to reduce the country's pension deficit by raising taxes, delaying retirements and creating individual saving accounts.
