People are tired of being taxed to death while wages stay meager and the price of everything we need continues to rise. America's wages are exceedingly low, prices continue to rise, especially gas and food prices. Why? Because we are in a crunch like Pastor says. Chaos is on the way. War, riots like this, bloodshed, natural disasters, evil in the streets, oh, God, please help us!the USA will have a big protest before long if obama keeps it up.

The 2013 protests in Brazil, known in Portuguese as Revolta da Salada, Revolta do Vinagre ([ʁɛˈvɔwtɐ] or [ʁeˈvɔwtɐ ðɐ sɐˈlaðɐ], [ðu viˈnaɣɾi], Salad/Vinegar Rebellion), Primavera Brasileira, ([pɾĩmɐˈvɛɾɐ bɾɐziˈlejɾɐ]) or Brazilian Spring, also Outono Brasileiro ([owˈtõnu bɾɐziˈlejɾu]) or Brazilian Autumn, are ongoing public demonstrations in some Brazilian cities, organized mainly by the Free Fare Movement, a local entity that advocates for free public transportation. The demonstrations were organized mostly to protest against increases in bus, train and metro tickets in some cities of that country,[1][2][3][4] but are already involving other subjects such as the police brutality used against some protesters.

The first demonstrations took place in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte during August--September in 2012 called "Revolta do Busão" (Bus Rebellion), when protesters convinced the local city hall to reduce the fare price. [7] It then went to Porto Alegre in March; protesters also convinced the local city hall to reduce the fare price there.[8] In Goiânia, the demonstrations started on May 16th, before the prices were officially raised on 22 May from R$ 2,70 to R$ 3,00.[9] The peak of the demonstrations was on May 28th, at Bíblia Square, when four buses were destroyed, two were incinerated and two were stoned.[9] 24 students were arrested for vandalism and disobedience.[9] Another demonstration took place on June 6th, when students closed streets in downtown Goiânia, set fire to tires and threw bombs at police cars.[9] On June 13th, the fares were brought back to their previous price, when judge Fernando de Mello Xavier issued a preliminary injunction arguing that since June 1st the local bus companies were exempted from paying some taxes, but the passengers were not benefiting from this exemption.[9]

People protesting in the streets of Rio de Janeiro. The sign reads "Se a passagem não baixar, o Rio vai parar!", which is translated to "If the ticket (price) doesn't drop, Rio is going to stop!" In São Paulo, the demonstrations started when the local city hall and the government of the state of São Paulo (which runs the train and metro system of São Paulo) announced the raise of the tickets prices from R$3,00 to R$3,20[10] The previous hike of bus fares occurred in January 2011,[11] and was also subject to demonstrations.[12] As for the train and metro fares, they had been raised in February 2012, to the same price.[13] In early 2013, just after becoming mayor of the city, Fernando Haddad announced that the fares would raise in the first semester of 2013.[14] In May, the federal government announced that public transportation would be exempted from paying PIS and COFINS, two taxes of Brazil, so that the raise of the public transportation costs would not severe the ongoing inflation.[15] The fares were, so, raised from R$3,00 to R$3,20, starting on 2 June, and unchaining the demonstrations.
