Hundreds of supporters of the Workers' Party rallied in Sao Paulo in support of former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. He was briefly detained by police earlier in the day as part of a large-scale corruption probe into the state-owned Petrobas oil company.
During the rally, party representatives called for supporters to march against the detention of the former Brazilian leader and one of the founding member of the Workers' Party.
Following Lula's detainment, police raided his home over evidence that the ex-president had received illegal monetary benefits from the Petrobas oil company.
