“The party in Carnival week never ceases in Rio,” says Brazilian photographer Leonardo Coelho. But eventually the day comes when the party is over and thus “Rio de Janeiro wakes up to a trashed city after Carnival night “.
That is the title of a photo report by Coelho, which shows the “traces of trash scattered throughout Rio”. In a different set he calls it a “garbage crisis “, due to this year's strike of garbage collectors who are demanding better working conditions and wages.
Another photojournalist, Ale Silva (who also shared pictures of the day after  on Demotix), caught on camera a protest  staged by around 500 striking garbage collectors in front of Rio's city hall on March 4, 2014. More pictures of the day after can be seen on the website Fotos Públicas here  and here .
