Brazilians protest rising public transport costs

[UPDATED June 20 2013]  SAO PAULO, Brazil — On Thursday night last week, Brazil’s left-wing Free Fare Movement held the fourth of its street protests against a 10-cent hike in bus fares. A few thousand people turned out.

By Monday night, the movement had exploded. More than a quarter of a million people took to the streets in 12 state capitals to demand a smorgasbord of changes in government, including, but hardly limited to, lower public transit fares.

[UPDATED June 18, 2013]  SAO PAULO, Brazil — An estimated 50,000 people took to the streets of Sao Paulo on Tuesday, continuing protests in Brazil aimed at lowering public bus fares and improving public services.

The Free Fare Movement behind the protests said it would stay on the streets until the Sao Paulo government revoked a recent bus fare increase of about 10 cents.

SAO PAULO, Brazil — Tens of thousands of protesters in Brazil held rallies in at least 11 cities Monday, the fifth straight day of demonstrations in opposition to such issues as rising public bus fares and police violence.

Marches coordinated on social networks took place in cities including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, where police fired tear gas and rubber bullets on protesters, and Brasilia, where a small group climbed onto the roof of Congress.

In Sao Paulo, South America’s largest city, an estimated 65,000 people filled the streets in the fifth and largest protest in two weeks organized by the student-heavy “Free Fare Movement” against a 10-cent hike in the city’s bus fare. Support for the group has mushroomed since a widely publicized crackdown by military police Thursday that left 120 protesters and journalists injured.

    I'm pretty sure, a small amount of pepper spray can drop a grown man. Spraying a can of it on this little women is probably a bit of over kill. Tsk tsk.

    Well I think you could have chosen better pics to illustrate your story. You're basically showing violence. And as communication student and Brazilian I can assure you there are tons of better photos that really illustrate what's going on.

    Obey the lackeys of the ruling elites and BIG corporations.

    Even peaceful protest against the "powers that be" can result in injury or death.

    The USA has a multitude of examples of the common folks defying the established, entrenched elites being harmed, imprisoned, penalized monetarily and even murdered.

    Every country is based upon a pyramid-shaped socio-economic hierarchy and those at the bottom of the pile will WORK and create wealth so those atop the hierarchy can skim wealth and have economic security.

    OBEY COMMONERS!!!!!!!!!!!
