some 2015 political images...

2015 started with the Brazilian Rightwing going out into the streets of the main cities to call for the Impeachment of just-re-elected President Dilma Rousseff. Some accounts say more than a million people took to the streets to try and overthrow the President who had been re-elected on 26 October 2014 with 51.64% of the popular vote. 

2015 turned out to be a very hard year because the Right was certain they had the numbers and the streets. But as the year progressed things turned out differently because the Right put all their bets on the President of the Lower House - Eduardo Cunha, who turned out to have clay feet. Mr. Cunha was denounced as having a rich banking account in Switzerland with a lot of graft-money he collected through his meteorict career as a politician. 

some good-humoured marches eat a few 'coxinhas' before the March in Support of Democracy starts on 16 December 2015 at Avenida Paulista in Sao Paulo.
