Road blocks and marches hit Brazilian cities on Thursday as disparate groups criticised spending on the upcoming World Cup soccer tournament and sought to revive a call for better public services that swept the country last June.
Protests against the World Cup took place in at least 12 Brazilian cities, according the GloboNews 24-hour news channel. In Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city, a main thoroughfare was blocked with burning tires. Protesters also stormed a building in the capital Brasilia.
