Rio De Janeiro: Protests against new Brazilian President Michel Temer are taking place in several dozen cities across the country.
The news portal G1 has reported demonstrations in 40 cities yesterday, which is Brazil’s Independence Day. It is also the opening of the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
The biggest protest is in Sao Paulo, the country’s financial capital. Organisers claim tens of thousands are walking down Paulista Avenue in the heart of the city. Police haven’t provided estimates.
Most of the other demonstrations have been much smaller.
Temer took power last week after President Dilma Rousseff was removed from office by the Senate for breaking fiscal responsibility laws in her management of the budget. Rousseff denied the accusations.
