Brazilians rally against Rouseff impeachment
Supporters of the embattled Brazilian president, Dilma Rousseff, have staged a fresh demonstration as she is facing possible impeachment within weeks.
On Sunday, hundreds of people gathered in downtown Sao Paulo to organize a bid to resist the impeachment process against Rousseff.
The protesters plan to continue their “occupy democracy” rallies until the Senate votes against the impeachment.
“We are creating three groups, one that will work with social media, one that will work on urban interventions and another one that will be in charge of street occupations in the city,” protester Vania Santos said.
The protester said that Paulista Avenue, where the event took place, “is organizing in groups as part of the movement ‘occupy democracy’. And we are fighting against impeachment process, it is a state coup.”
The Brazilian president suffered a crushing defeat after losing a lower house vote that put her just weeks away from being ejected from office.
