Protests in Brazil

A masked demonstrator holds up a sign that reads in Portuguese "No mandatory vote," referring to Brazil's law that citizens are obligated to vote in all elections, during a protest march toward the Mineirao stadium where a Confederations Cup semifinal soccer match will be played between Brazil and Uruguay in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Wednesday, June 26, 2013. The wave of protests that hit Brazil on June 17 began as opposition to transportation fare hikes, then expanded to a list of causes including anger at high taxes, poor services and high World Cup spending, before coalescing around the issue of rampant government corruption.
