Brazil: Protesters Want Military Rule

Dozens of protesters demanding a military coup on Wednesday, November 16, 2016  forced their way into Brazil's lower chamber of Congress in the capital, Brasilia, BBC reported. At least 40 demonstrators scuffled with guards and took over the podium as a session began on Wednesday. Denouncing government corruption, they called for a return to military rule - which Brazil saw from 1964 to 1985.It took police three hours to round up  and detain all the protesters. President Michel Temer's spokesman, Alexandre Parola, called the protest an "affront" and said it was a "violation of the norms of democratic co-existence."
