Protestors took to the streets in Brazil over the weekend to demand the resignation of Brazilian President Michel Temer. 

Temer and his government have been engulfed by a growing corruption scandal which has threatened to halt their agenda. 

Hundreds of people marched in major cities in the country reflecting the discontent within the country. However, the protests were smaller than those that took place in 2016 in opposition to then President Dilma Rousseff, who was later impeached.

The accusations against Temer were strengthened by the release of a recording that appears to show the President condoning the payment of money to a politician who was jailed in a previous corruption probe.
