Brazil: another video of the brutal repression in Sao Paulo

Must watch video: police first attacks demonstrators chanting "no violence", then attacks the press, then it all becomes a war zone of sorts. This is what is happening in Brazil:

Upon this show of gratuitous police brutality, which happened on the evening of Thursday 13th (already mentioned from another point of view here), people began chanting: peace is over, Turkey is here

Protests have extended to other cities of the South American giant: at least to Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre. 

Grievances are not just about the bus fare rise of 7% but also there seems to be deep growing discontent in Brazilian society. Some protesters hunched at anti-abortion law, others to rising crime and then of course many at the crowded, yet expensive, public transport system.
