2013 Brazilian Protests
Starting in June, various protests began in São Paulo, following the increase in bus and metro fare prices.
The first big protest happened on the 6th June 2013.
As protests want on, Police tactics quickly became very heavy-handed.
Eventually, the media organisations that had at first condemned the protests began to report on the levels of police brutality against the peaceful protesters – especially as journalists themselves started to be assaulted by the police.
By the 17th June a reported 250,000 protesters attended events in various cities all over Brazil.
On the 19th numerous city mayors announced they would be making travel cheaper, revoking price increases.
On the 20th June over 2 million people protested, making this series of protests the biggest for decades.
The government announced a series of measures in response to the protests, including improvements to travel, health and education.
Protests have continued, including protests against the forthcoming football World Cup.

Throughout the protests (watch the video above) there is a lot of graffiti.
We have put together a gallery of graffiti, and general craziness from the protests:
We hope the people of Brazil achieve the changes they hope for.
