Things are really going down in Brazil. People are going to the streets through all country, cops are abusing of their own power and media is trying to tell to the people that are not really aware of what's going on what to think. The government? I don't know.

I wanna know, as a Brazilian and one of the many rioters here, what you think of all that, and if you have an opinion.

If you wanna know anything real, I can post some videos.
I don't know if there's any good article in English about this.

On the topic of "English articles", allow me to cite The Guardian:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/25/brazil-president-dilma-rousseff-reform

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/blog/2013/jun/26/sepp-blatter-fifa-brazil-world-cup

As a Spaniard who took part in the 2011 25-M protests against politicians, you have my entire support.

I took a gas bomb almost in my face. I'm going to the streets to fight. And I want to spread to people in other countries what's happening.

And thank you for the articles Went, you're welcome. :)
