Brazilians Take To The Streets

Anti-corruption protests involving thousands of demonstrators broke out this week in Rio de Janeiro.

People there are waving brooms to show they want to clean up graft.

‘The demonstrators brought to the protest 594 brooms painted green and yellow,’ according to Fox News, ‘the colors of the national flag, which represent every one of the country’s 81 senators and 513 lower house members.’

Four ministers have resigned from the Brazilian government in the past three months amid bribery scandals.

Reports said the demonstrators are using Facebook and Twitter to organize the protests.
