Brazil: Thousands of pro-Dilma protesters take to Sao Paolo’s streets

Thousands of protesters took to the streets in Sao Paulo, Thursday, to show their support to the Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and to protest against impeachment charges against her.
Protesters waved flags and held banners, while some of them lit flares as they walked through Sao Paulo. The demonstration has been called by the 'Frente Popular" (People's Front) and supported by several Brazilian workers unions.
Protests both in favour and against Rousseff and her ruling party were sparked after the Brazilian leader decided to nominate her predecessor Lula da Silva to Chief of Staff of the Presidency. The president's move to make Lula Chief of Staff of the Presidency comes despite the erstwhile Brazilian leader being under investigation for charges of corruption and money laundering, relating to the ongoing Petrobras scandal.
