Popular protests spill over to Paraguay

The Brazilian mass protests have served as example for the Paraguayan People, who have even more reasons to take over the streets, as the regime is pretty much illegitimate after the "legal coup" against President Lugo exactly a year ago. 

Thousands concentrated in the Plaza de Armas of Asunción just meters away from the putschist Parliament crying against the "luxury retirement" of MPs, who keep 60% of their salary after 10 years of service and 90% after 15, as well as in demand of decent public services.

Some protesters attempted to reach Parliament, being arrested on the spot.

The protests were called through the social networks by #PorUnParaguayMejor (for a better Paraguay).
