200,000 Brazilians Take to the Streets SHARE: Tweet There’s like a brazilian people out there protesting. As many as 200,000 Brazilians have taken to the streets in the biggest protests in more than 20 years. The waves of protests have swept through Brazil’s largest cities, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia and Sao Paolo. The huge demonstrations in Rio, seen here reflected on the glass of a building, gathered 100,000 protesters alone.

The marches have added to the growing unease over Brazil’s sluggish economy, high inflation and a spurt in violent crime, according to Reuters. Protesters are also lamenting the expense of staging the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics instead of investing in health and education. The marchers are mostly peaceful, as evidenced by this effort: source unknown But, of course, like elsewhere, riot police are asserting themselves: AP Photo/Victor R.
