Brazil protests

Demonstrators run past burning garbage and objects during protests against poor public services, police violence and government corruption in Sao Paulo June 18, 2013. President Dilma Rousseff on Tuesday sought to defuse a massive protest movement sweeping Brazil, acknowledging the need for better public services and more responsive governance as demonstrations continued in some cities around the country.
