Photo: Top Images of the #ChangeBrazil Protests
Protests in Brazil have been going on for nearly a week over against the state of public transit, schools and other public services in the South American country.
The discontent arising from the 10-cent price increase in bus and subway fares, shed light on the greater issue of Brazil’s high tax burden and poor public services.
Originally organized via social media using the hashtag #ChangeBrazil, people from around the world have been showing their support.
