Over the first weeks of June Brazilians, frustrated by a range of problems from corruption to poor public transport, responded to calls on social media and took part in the country’s biggest demonstrations in 20 years. The peaceful, even celebratory atmosphere that had attracted many university students and even their parents to demonstrations over the past week took a big and possibly lasting hit on Thursday night (20/06). Two people died as a result of the protests, local media reported, including one death caused by a car plowing into a crowd.  More than 60 were injured in Rio de Janeiro alone.
