Thousands of Brazillians came out en mass to protest against their president,President Dilma Rousseff.
The protesters are angry over the alleged wide spread corruption in her government.
Along with the worrying state of depression in the country, another major source of anger of the protesters is the alleged large scale corruption at government run oil company Petrobras.Prosecutors allege it is the biggest case of corruption ever uncovered in Brazil.It is being alleged that at least $800 million was paid in bribes in exchange for inflated Petrobras contracts.
According to a protester, Marlon Aymes, 35,
“I don’t want my country to turn into a Venezuela, we don’t want an authoritarian government!. We want the military to dissolve Congress and call new elections, because the level of corruption is too widespread to do anything else”
Another protester, Sheila Alcantara claims ..........
“Never in my life have I heard of so much corruption, of so much money lost,” she said. “A military intervention is the only way to clean the government, the executive branch Cabinet, the Congress. They’re all bribed off.”
