Recent Recife News 01

I found three interesting stories (all in Portuguese, sorry) which I’ll share with you today.

The first comes from Direitos Urbanos and talks about the Reserva Camará Project where 25 large buildings are to be built in a historically important area where the old textile factory in Camaragibe resides.

The second is a video from G1 Pernambuco/NETV which is doing a series on small-scale corruption, the kind that normal people do in their day-to-day.

The third is also a video, about a gov’t project called Relix that, in part, involves giving bicycles to street recyclers in Recife. Here’s an article regarding the project.
