Rio de Janeiro demonstrations

June 21, 2013 Brazil

Over one million demonstrators took to the streets of Rio de Janeiro, protesting against corruption, police brutality, poor public services, and the government’s excess spending on the World Cup.

It was the biggest demonstration Brazil had seen in decades.

The Brazilian riot police fired pepper spray and rubber bullets into the crowds, causing dozens to be injured.
