A group of demonstrators against Interim President Michel Temer held a protest on Sunday, May 22, in the surrounding areas of his house, in the west zone of São Paulo.

At the end of the demonstration, a large number of protestors set up camp in a square near Temer's home.

The demonstration was organized by Frente Povo Sem Medo, which is comprised of entities connected to leftist movements. The protestors intended to reach Temer's home in the neighborhood of Alto de Pinheiros, but was forced to stop because of blocks made by the police.

Security agents on Temer's street also received reinforcements as two trucks of the police shock troops arrived.

The protesters stayed at a distance of 200 meters from the square where the interim president's home is and began to shout and protest.

During the demonstration, several walls in the neighborhood were graffitied with words such as "Out, Temer" and "Coupist". Temer, however, was already in Brasilia when the demonstration began - he left home at about 2:30 pm.

BLOCKADE

The police say that the blockades created an area of national security. Each of the four barriers is located some 300 meters from Temer's house and only residents are allowed to pass after they are checked by the police.
