Civil War starts in Brazil

Police in Brazil beginning to attack demonstrations of Dilma Rousseff supporters with tear gas and rubber bullets.

Yesterday, before the start of impeachment proceedings, it has already happened, but today, the protesters began to answer: the police side was thrown at with stones and various homemade devices such as Molotov cocktails and firecrackers. It is reported that the demonstrators blocked the roadways with bags, which were later set on fire.

The riots occurred in the center of São Paulo, the largest city in Brazil.

Background on this from Katehon:

It should be recalled that the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff took place in violation of existing legislation. According to the laws and constitution of the country, the president can be dismissed only for reasons of proven crime. On this basis, the supporters of the incumbent president declared a coup attempt at the expense of democratic legitimacy.
