Brazil: protests take over Independence Day

The Independence Day demonstration in Rio de Janeiro has been violently repressed by police forces using tear gas and rubber bullets. The demonstration coincided in time and space with the ritual military parade, which had already been reduced in size because of the expected protests, which have been called for all the country against corruption and anti-social policies. 

We are tired of the most expensive World Cup ever, of the politicians, of the highest interest rates on Earth, of teachers living with misery salaries, of public works that never end, of the mercenary and manipulated press, said one of the demonstrators.

Events still unfolding in this Brazilian Independence Day.
