NASRUAS – CONTRA CORRUPÇÃO

Past Saturday was quite interesting for my usual weekend street photography rounds. There were some manifestations going on on the surrounding areas of Av. Paulista, one worth to mention was a movement against corruption called “NASRUAS”, in which a considerable amount of people gather to protest against the government, corruption, and all the usual things that sadly plague our political world, doesnt matter in which country you are. Things started quite peaceful but ended, with a short confrontation between the police forces and the protestors. Things started to get a bit out of hand, and I decided to go away to avoid any inconvenience, considering I am no journalist.

Worth mentioning that does who sold the Anonymous masks must have made a fortune. The protest was plague of them.

All pictures shoot with a D700, plus 20mm and 85mm. As always comments and critics highly welcome.

You can found more about the movement in there Facebook group, NASRUAS.

  1. pretty close to photo journalism! really good shots! seems the peaceful protest is an oxymoran. no one but ghandi ever protested peacefully, and no one is ever really allowed to stage a peaceful protest because it inconveniences those being protested. always a good study in human behavior, though.

    • Thanks for the comments silverlizard, yep so true what you said about a peaceful protest being an oxymoron. And sadly I think that with a peaceful protest not much can be achieved unless the whole country stops to protest…..you definitly need to be loud enough to be heard… and usually that means going out of the peacefull boundries.
