Thousands protest in Brazil

Thousands protest in Brazil over inflation and the economy

A stunning photo spread of protests in Brazil in recent days. Thousands have taken to the streets around the country as discontent over inflation and the economy mount, fuelling dissatisfaction with President Dilma Rousseff. The president, whose approval rating slipped eight percentage points this month, was jeered at a packed football stadium over the weekend while inaugurating the Confederations Cup.

One of the protesters’ grievances was a 10-cent increase in bus fare. It might not seem like much to middle-class and rich people, but every little increase in the cost of living can really hurt the poor.
