Nine cents have been enough to make tens of thousands of Brazilians cry foul for a week.
For the demonstrators who have transformed streets in Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte into protest battlegrounds, it isn't so much that the price of a bus ticket went up from 3.00 to 3.20 reais ($1.38 to $1.47).
The small bump in fare was the straw that broke the camel's back in a much larger issue, and protesters plan to march again Tuesday to vent their anger.
I am much more wary of social-justice issues involving money than of social issues involving freedom.
For some people, freedom is money.
Yes banasy. That is true.
that indeed is true@banasy
And the two are perhaps intertwined.
For many people, it is, saywhat.
I hope the Brazilian authorities address the citizens concerns.
it's not for the cents , it's way more than that .... Corruption , lack of attention in public health , Education , WARNING FOR THE PEOPLE PLANING TO COME FOR THE WORLD CUP , OUR COUNTRY iS A MESS , VIOLENCE , POLICE Corruption ...it's a shame ..... and will take a long way to solve this ....
I'm brazilian like Renato and i can tell you! IS NOT ABOUT CENTS! Its about MONEY, our money! We are sick about violence and corruption!!
You dont know waht u talking about. Do u know BraSil? Do u ever been in BraSil? I guess not.....
you are right most have not.But its our way & way of our politicos to pass judgements, lecture and philosophize about cultures & nations we know zilch about.
That cop's face is "derped". Maybe he's working for 35 cents an hour and wonders why poor people worry about 9 cents.
