2192 NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Riot police in Brazil's largest city, Sao Paulo, fired tear gas at protesters demonstrating against the impeachment of suspended President Dilma Rousseff, in a third and what is expected to be the penultimate day of the trial on Tuesday (August 30). At least four people were arrested at the protest organised by members of the Revolutionary Workers' Movement and the Homeless Workers' Movement, among other supporters of the leftist leader who is expected to be removed from office this week. Main roads were blocked by protesters since the morning, with objects set on fire. Rousseff, who was suspended from office in May pending the trial, is accused of using money from state banks to bolster spending during her re-election campaign in 2014, a budgetary sleight of hand employed by many elected officials in Brazil.
