H10 temer protest

In Brazil, protesters gathered in cities across the country Sunday to demand the resignation of President Michel Temer, following explosive testimony released by the Supreme Court Friday that accuses Temer of accepting millions of dollars in bribes since 2010. On Saturday, Temer vowed not to resign. But key political groups, including political parties, and the influential lawyers association have backed the impeachment calls. This is the president of Brazil’s Workers’ Party, Rui Falcão, at the protest Sunday.

Rui Falcão “All over the country, people are taking to the streets today in defense of direct elections now. Temer’s government has ended. He doesn’t have the moral and political legitimacy to end the country’s crisis. There are 14 million unemployed people already.”
