I got lots of photos and videos from Best Gore member zeehkaev who told me that there are several protests happening in Brazil right now. It started in São Paulo where protests were sparked by recent hikes in fares for public transportation but apparently spread to other places as well.
According to zeehkaev, around 26,000 people participated in a peaceful protest on Avenida Paulista – the main street in São Paulo where they were shot at by police with rubber bullets and tear gas despite them chanting “Peaceful Manifestation”.
Protesters can reportedly be seen holding banners with such messages as “We Want Brazil Fixed” or “Don’t Let the Government Rape You”.
Video of riot police firing rubber bullets at protesters:
Gallery of a few photos from the protests is below. Unfortunately, based on what I see in photos, some protesters are vandalizing public property which doesn’t help anyone with anything. I’m with my Brazilian friends in these trying times, and definitely support them in their struggle to get their country fixed, I just don’t understand the premise of destroying what tax money had to pay for as more tax money will have to be used to rebuild it:
