On Sunday, March 15, flames of mass protests started burning in several Brazilian cities. Thousands of people took part in demonstrations against Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and government corruption. The rallies were held in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais), Salvador (Bahia), Recife (Pernambuco) and many other cities.
Demonstrators accuse Rousseff of her support to oil state corporation Petroleo Brasileiro (Petrobras). The company was allegedly bribing the government for obtaining lucrative contracts and plundered the Brazilian budget in the amount of $28 billion, while Dilma was serving as the head of the board of directors of the corporation.

The country is rich with huge deposits of oil, the unconfirmed reserves of which exceed 100 billion barrels. However, it was during Lula's presidency, when Brazil opted for the Chinese state-run company Sinopec.
