Brazil/The power of protest

Brazil is undergoing a change of direction in the past two weeks. People have taken to the streets to vent their anger at a government that is basically non-responsive. What started out as a protest about transit services quickly evolved into something much larger. Lack of sufficient healthcare services along with a terrible school system is taking its toll on the nation. Political corruption among members of their Congress is also troubling. Will the protests amount too any political change? Some say it already has accomplished some positive movement in efforts too confront corruption. The important thing to remember is that change has risks if it happens too quickly. Hopefully protestors and security forces will respect each other and not resort to violence.
