Protesters clashed with riot police across Brazil Thursday in the country's biggest demonstrations in decades. Some 300,000 people filled the streets of Rio forcing businesses and some subway stations to close. In Brasilia in front of the Congress and Supreme Court, police sprayed demonstrators in the face with pepper spray as they tried to throw plastic cones into the windows of the buildings. Protesters are angered over a range of social issues including the more than $26 billion dollars in public money spent on the upcoming World Cup and Olympics.
