Overview: Brazil

There was, in mid-June 2013, no doubt that political protest in Brasil had become as much the norm as it was – or had been – in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and, latterly, Turkey.  If bus fares were the catalyst, after a few days the protests were about a lot more: Brazil’s protestors were discontented with both their politics and their politicians. The irony appeared to be that the people and institutions that were the cause of the protests seemed to be in denial, unable to understand what all the fuss was about. Fed up with a political system that failed to represent the interests of a large swathe of the Brazilian population, the protests had moved on from something as straightforward as increased bus fares to target corruption and police repression.
