Large anti-government protests in multiple cities in Brazil

Approximately 200,000 Brazilians demonstrated in São Paulo to protest major corruption scandals and to oppose president Dilma Rousseff. Large protests also occurred in other cities including the capital Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, Bahia. Although these demonstrations were apparently peaceful, travellers should avoid all public and political protests since they may become violent without notice.
