SAO PAULO — Protesters on Friday promised more organized action across Brazil in the days to come, following clashes in which police in Sao Paulo set upon thousands of young demonstrators angered by hikes in bus and subway fares.
Newspapers carried photos of bloodied protesters and journalists with battered, swollen faces, a young couple being beaten by police and videos of tear gas canisters and rubber bullets being fired into crowds chanting “no violence!” Protesters set fire to garbage bags piled in streets, broke windows and spray-painted graffiti on buildings and buses.
Protest organizers said more than 100 demonstrators were injured. Police would only say that 12 officers were hurt and that more than 230 people were detained and later released in the Thursday night demonstrations in Sao Paulo.
I went to see Solange in concert last night and was blown away by her stage presence (no surprise there). I love her confidence and she just reminds me of someone I would be friends with.. she says stuff like “Aight yall we are about to turn this into a high school freak party, no one’s exempt” lol. So after singing through ‘True’ and some of her old stuff she hit us with this track “Stillness is the Move” which I had never heard before so I recorded it and did some research this morning. She covered this song by Dirty Projectors (never heard of them before) and I’m equally in love with BOTH versions. Her taste is very eclectic and that’s definitely a sign of true talent. Mind blown for reals. Anyway, check out the both of them below.
