Bush Greeted With Protest Demonstrations In Brazil
George Bush was met by angry demonstrators in Sao Paulo, Brazil as he launches a seven day visit to Latin America.
Upon arriving in Brazil, Bush told local reporters, "I don't think America gets enough credit for trying to help improve people's lives," he said. "My trip is to explain as clearly as I can that our nation is generous and compassionate."
More than 6,000 students, environmentalists and left-leaning Brazilians held a largely peaceful march through the heart of Sao Paulo before police fired tear gas at protesters and beat them with batons. Hundreds fled and ducked into businesses to avoid the chaos, some of them bloodied.
This was clearly an 'ANTI BUSH' demonstration. All sign and banners condemned Bush, no signs condemned the United States nor the American people.
