‘Out with Temer!’ Brazilian police fire tear gas, rubber bullets at pro-Rousseff protesters (VIDEOS) — RT News

Clashes have erupted in Brazil with police deploying tear gas and rubber bullets on protesters voicing their opposition to the country’s new interim government. It follows the suspension of President Dilma Rousseff in a move that many are calling a coup.

Demonstrators hit the streets of Brazil’s largest city, Sao Paolo, for a rally calling for the removal of acting president Michel Temer.

Footage from the streets showed police forcing protesters to the ground and officers using batons against demonstrators.

Some activists tried to occupy the building where the leader’s regional office is situated.

The protesters are speaking out against the May suspension of President Dilma Rousseff, who now faces an impeachment trial. The move has been dubbed a coup by Rousseff’s supporters, and many claim Temer plotted her downfall to stifle a corruption investigation into Petrobras, Brazil’s state-owned oil enterprise.
