Brazilians Reject Roman Circus

As the G8 wraps up and police continue their crackdown on Turkish anti-consumption activists, eight Brazilian cities are seeing massive demonstrations against the rising cost of transportation and the money being spent by the government to host a football championship and the 2016 Olympics.

Like, Greeks, Brits, Americans, Brazilians want their taxes spent on better health care, infrastructure and eduction.

They don’t want to be bought off, like ancient Romans, with circuses.
