O Globo, March 14, 2016
" Brazil takes to the streets against Dilma and Lula and in favor of Moro," Rio-based daily O Globo writes on its front page Monday, a day after an estimated 3.6 million Brazilians protested recession and corruption and called for the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff.
Sao Paulo's Avenida Paulista (pictured on O Globo"s front page) saw the biggest turnout, with between 500,000 and 1.4 million people protesters, according to police estimates. Marches took place in more than 300 cities across the country, the daily reports.
Angered by a worsening recession and corruption scandals, demonstrators demanded President Dilma Rousseff's resignation, a mere 18 months after she narrowly won re-election.
Her predecessor President Lula was also in the protesters' crosshairs, with calls for him to be jailed for his involvement in the Petrobras scandal, while demonstrators showed support for Sergio Moro, the judge overseeing the prosecution.
