The people are waking up. In European and South American nations, the government fears the people. Here in America, however, the people fear the government. Any uprising like this would be immediately met with violent police opposition here in "the land of the free".
Kudos to those whom have had enough of lawless governments. I stand in support of them.

Canadian MSM say its all happening because of a 10c increase of public transport fare. They even call it the public transport crisis or something along these lines. Makes you wonder !
It remains unclear whether revoking the fare increases, which followed similar fare cuts in other state capitals, will be enough to quell the unrest. Initially focused in cities like Sao Paulo, Rio and Brasilia, demonstrations have spread, with protests planned in more than 70 smaller cities for Thursday.
After the fare increase was scrapped, leaders of the protest movement in Sao Paulo said their cause would now shift to free public transport and that a planned protest for Thursday would be a celebration.
