Tens of thousands have taken to the streets in cities across Brazil to express disgust and outrage with public corruption. Some protesters have also called for the president to be removed, as well as members of Congress.

Tens of thousands of protesters across Brazil have called for a probe against corruption, dubbed Operation Car Wash, marching through the streets in cities around the country.

In Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city, about 15,000 people dressed in the national colors of yellow and green marched down the financial area known as Avenida Paulista on Sunday, unfurling a banner that said "Corrupt Congress."


In a demonstration in Rio de Janeiro, where two former governors have been jailed on corruption charges, protesters waved banners with messages such as "We are all Sergio Moro," referencing the judge overseeing the investigation into a kickback scheme involving the national oil company Petrobras, several construction conglomerates and politicians.

Other protesters held signs calling for the removal of the president and leaders in Congress. In a statement, Brazilian President Michel Temer said the demonstrations showed "the force and vitality" of Brazil's democracy.
