SAO PAULO – Police used tear gas, stun grenades and pepper spray Friday to disperse sometimes violent demonstrations against bus fare increases in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the two biggest Brazilian cities.
The protests were organized by the Free Fare Movement, the same group that initiated mass anti-government demonstrations that filled streets across Brazil in 2013. A similar but peaceful protest was held Belo Horizonte.
