As performer after performer appeared on the outdoor stages, the Virada Cultural festival in Sao Paulo quickly turned into a massive protest against Brazil’s new acting president, Michel Temer, and the conservative government he installed following the impeachment of his predecessor less than two weeks ago.
One rock band, Nacao Zumbi, led the crowd in chants that echoed through the center of the city: “Temer out! Temer out!”
Rapper Criolo performed in front of a giant electronic sign that proclaimed “Never Temer,” playing on a double meaning. In Portuguese, temer means “to fear.”
