Brazil's Rousseff pledges talks after mass protests

Demonstrators protest against Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff's government in Manaus, on March 15, 2015Brasília (AFP) – Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff pledged Monday to hold talks with her growing number of critics and said her embattled government needed to show humility, a day after massive protests erupted across the country. Rousseff was narrowly re-elected less than six months ago in a bitterly fought runoff but is already facing pressure to quit over a snowballing $3.8 billion graft scandal at state oil firm Petrobras which has dragged in her ruling coalition and seen calls for her to be impeached. Her mounting woes include a badly faltering economy and on Sunday protests against her took place in major towns and cities across Brazil, laying bare the scale of public discontent.
