Instagrammers Capture Protests in Brazil

Thousands gathered in Brazil’s largest cities starting over the weekend and running through tonight to protest what started as a fight against bus-fare increases and has evolved into one of the biggest movements since the nation’s military dictatorship ended in 1985. Protesters are voicing frustration about a variety of issues, including inflation, government corruption, tax rates and the cost and delays associated with next year’s World Cup soccer tournament.

In São Paulo, thousands took to Avenida Paulista to march and wave Brazilian flags. In Rio de Janeiro, marchers stormed Avenida Rio Branco. In Brasilía, protesters danced atop the roof of the Congresso Nacional. To view more photos, visit the #vemprarua and #protestorj hashtags.

This demonstration was sparked by public transport issues. Turkish protests were sparked by the demolition of a public park. Morsi asks Egyptian civilians for a curfew, they protest and riot. 2001 Bush wins electoral vote but loses popular… nothing. Nothing happened. He went on to screw the country for four years and that was that. Am I the only that thinks that Americans are WAY too tolerant of their government?
