35 People Protesting against Olympics Detained in Sao Paulo

SAO PAULO Brazilian military police detained on Friday at least 35 people in Sao Paulo protesting against the 2016 Olympic Games that kicked off the same day in Rio de Janeiro.

Close to 100 people gathered for the protest at the Paulista Avenue (Avenida Paulista), known as the financial heart of the country, and clashes occurred as they proceeded towards the city center.

The anti-riot branch of the military police used tear gas to break up the demonstration.

The police report said 35 people were taken to a police station after several demonstrators pelted stones at officers monitoring the protest.

According to the authorities, the demonstrators were not authorized to move towards the city center due to lack of prior information provided by the protest organizers.

The protest occurred almost simultaneously with the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, where a similar demonstration took place outside the stadium.
