We Brazilians are sick of the corruption in our country. Health system is really bad, education is ridiculous, more than 90% of the public schools are inept to educate our children. Minimum wage is only 678 Reais (1 dollar = 2,15 Reais, so the minimum wage in dollar is about 315,34 $). People are being killed or robbed due to the lack of public safety. The public transportation system is bad and expensive.

People didn't attack the police to reduce crime rates or to get back a money already spent. Of course not. We are not stupid. Pacific protestors were attacked by the police as they protested against the corruption, high criminal rate, expensive transportation rates, bad education and bad health care system.

The government has spent 30 billions of dollars with stadiums. 10 per cent of the brazilians don't have nothing to eat. Our education is poorest in the world. We can't handle it anymore.

I'm from Rio , Brazil , and I can tell you about it with property. These protests aren't about the increasing of the bus fare. It is only the catalyser. We claim more investments in the education , and in the public system of health.
