Upward of 50,000 people gathered in Sao Paulo, Brazil for the second night in row yesterday, protesting the government's corruption and inefficiency. A large part of the protests center around the billions of dollars spent to host next summer's World Cup and the 2016 Olympics while other needs have not been met.
