Folha de S. Paulo, Aug. 17, 2015
Hundreds of thousands of Brazilians took to the streets in cities across the country Sunday, calling for Dilma Rousseff's resignation as the Brazilian president and her party face corruption allegations.
"New protests keep Dilma under pressure; 135,000 demonstrate in Sao Paulo," Monday's Folha de S. Paulo"s front page reads, alongside a picture of a Sao Paulo street packed with protesters.
According to O Globo, 879,000 people took part in the demonstrations in 205 cities across the country, driven by growing anger about Brazil's flailing economy and widespread corruption scandals, including the Petrobras case that implicates Rousseff and many of the country's businessmen and politicians.
Rousseff, less than a year into her second term as president, has seen her approval rating drop to below 10%.
