Storyline


Thousands of protesters took to street across Brazil on Thursday, demanding President Michel Temer's resignation and to hold an election as soon as possible.

In the country's second largest city of Rio de Janeiro, thousands of protesters waved placards and shouted slogans as they marched down the main street. The protest, organized by several social organizations, asked for an ahead-of-schedule presidential election. The election was previously set in 2018.

The new wave of protests came after earlier reports claiming corruption of Temer. It was reported that a tape record could link Temer to potential bribe to silence former Speaker of the House Eduardo Cunha. Cunha had spearheaded the impeachment of ex-President Dilma Rousseff, and is now serving a 15-year sentence for corruption and money-laundering.

The protest blocked traffic in downtown area, disrupting several bus and light rail lines.

Banks and stores in downtown area were shielded with protection bars.

Rio government sent out riot squad to the site to keep order Thursday afternoon.

"We demand an election. We want to speak for ourselves and choose a president without restrictions," said Mario Silveira, a protester.

"We have the right to choose a new direction for the country. We want another democratic election, for a more equal, more fair country," said Andrea, another protester.

Temer had spoken out in the early hours of the protest, denying allegations of corruption and claiming firm stance on no resignation. This is the first time Temer spoke up after the record was exposed.

Other cities including Sao Paulo and Brasilia also saw protests on Thursday.

Local media reported that Sunday will see even bigger protests.
