A nationwide protest against left-wing Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff drew at least 1.5 million people across 147 cities in the country Sunday.

Shouting "Fora, Dilma!" ("Dilma out!") and dressed in the national flag's colors of blue, green and yellow, the protestors marched against the deteriorating state of Brazil's economy, inflation and corruption, the daily Folha de S. Paulo reports on its front page Monday.

Demonstrators also demanded Rousseff be removed from her presidential duties amid the Petrobras scandal, a massive corruption case involving the president's Workers’"Party and the Brazilian oil giant Petrobras.

The protests are the most significant since the historic social unrest that shook the country in June 2013. Sunday's marches were peaceful and came just five months after Rousseff was reelected president.

This is the fourth World Cup that I’m watching away from my home country, Argentina. Every experience has been different but, at times, Qatar 2022 feels a lot like Japan-South Korea 2002, the first one I experienced from abroad, when I was 20 years old and living in Spain.

Now, two decades later, living in Greece as the father of two children, some of those memories are reemerging vividly.
