Demo to show support for embattled President Dilma Rousseff

Thousands of demonstrators filled the streets of downtown Rio de Janeiro on Thursday to show their support for embattled President Dilma Rousseff.

Carrying banners with messages reading: "Be strong my president, we are with you," protesters chanted against calls to impeach Rousseff. It was one of dozens of marches that took place throughout Brazil on Thursday in support of Rousseff's government.
