Protesters wear masks to protect themselves from tear gas as one man raises a sign that reads, "Yes! I'm asking for $0.20 real!", and puts his hand out pretending to collect the fee he demands. A wave of protests took over Sao Paulo in early June, as thousands of residents peacefully marched against an increase in the price of a single bus fare. Police officers were accused of firing bullets and tear gas at protesters and assaulting some participants and bystanders. The attacks that emerged angered the residents and shifted their focus from rising transport costs to wider issues. Sao Paulo, June, 2013.
