In the last few days, more than 260,000 people have come out on the streets of Sao Paulo. They are doctors, engineers and young people, opposed to measures taken by Dilma Rouseff’s Government, one of which is lavishly spending on the 2014 World Cup.
Marilia Cunha, an Engineer from Sao Paulo said: “I am here because I take public transport every day, I know what it means to pay and not to have a quality service and I know what it means to walk in the streets and not to feel secure. This was just the trigger that made us come to the streets and scream, it’s time to get up and scream.”
Daniela Zago, a communications manager added:“What about our country, what about our people and the education and the health? Where is all this going too, we are tired, that’s enough. that’s enough.”
Marcelo Otis from Movimento Passe Livre said: “Many friends were arrested and unfairly accused, there were political accusations. They arrested people who only took pictures of the protests.”
