Brazil: Thousands protest tax, price hikes


Tens of thousands of people protested in Brazil’s largest cities Monday over dissatisfaction with the high cost of living and a stalled economy.

In São Paulo, what began with demonstrations against a hike in bus fares quickly grew to include Brazilians already incensed by the millions of dollars the government will spend on hosting a series of large-scale sporting events, such as the current Confederations Cup, the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games.

During the inaugural game of the Confederations Cup over the weekend, protesters jeered President Dilma Rousseff’s opening speech.

In Rio de Janeiro, protesters also voiced their anger at the state of public education and healthcare services in the country.
