Clashes erupted between police and dozens of protesters in Sao Paulo, Friday, as a crowd took to the streets to demonstrate against the Olympic Games and against corruption in the country. Protesters marched along the city's Avenida Paulista, before police moved in to stop their march, which resulted in police using batons against the demonstrators. Brazil has seen protests across the country against the Olympics, with people unhappy over the disparity between the funding for the games and money available for public projects.
