Brazil: Tires burn in Sao Paulo as protesters demand Temer's suspension

Scores of anti-government protesters blocked main access roads to Sao Paulo, Wednesday, as the country's National Congress readies to vote on whether to suspend Brazilian President Michel Temer and put him on trial for corruption. Demonstrators set piles of tires on fire while chanting «Temer out». Protesters have taken to the streets across the country since Brazilian newspaper O Globo... Еще published an article stating that Temer had been recorded agreeing to bribe former President of the Chamber of Deputies Eduardo Cunha. The allegations are part of the wide scale Brazilian anti-corruption investigation Operation Car Wash, in which Temer has become embroiled. If the National Congress votes against Temer, who currently has a five percent popularity rating, he will continue on as president, but will face a suspension for a period of six months and be tried by Brazil's Supreme Court. In case the body finds Temer guilty of collusion, the president will be removed permanently.
