Divided Brazilians hold rival impeachment rallies

Activists supporting the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff take part in a protest in Sao Paulo, Brazil on April 17, 2016Brasília (AFP) – Thousands of rival protesters gathered Sunday outside Brazil’s Congress for a vote on President Dilma Rousseff’s political future like fans at a tense football final, waving flags, wearing opposing colors and separated by a wall. Workers installed four large television screens on each side of the kilometer-long metal barrier for the crowds to follow the action — and keep score — as the lower house of Congress votes on whether to send an impeachment measure to the Senate. The leftist leader’s supporters, clad in red, trickled in through police checkpoints on the left side of the kilometer (half-mile) long metal barrier, while her opponents, wearing Brazil’s yellow and green colors, flocked to the right side.
