Police Crack Down on Protesters Demanding Temer's Ouster

Political parties allied with Michel Temer's Government have come to the conclusion that the President has lost his ability to remain in office. A fire broke out in the Ministry of Agriculture, and protesters broke windows and doors at other ministries. According to reports from the Military Police (PM), two of its troops were injured, while a civilian was due to be treated for gunshot wounds.

In Brasilia, the capital, thousands of protesters marched toward Congress in an effort to stop proposed reforms to the country's retirement system and labor laws.

Brazilian President Michel Temer faces a growing risk of not finishing his term after the emergence of an audio recording that appears to capture him endorsing hush money for a convicted former lawmaker.

Police quickly responded, firing tear gas to chase protesters away from the plaza where the government ministries, Congress and Supreme Court are located.

Temer had issued a presidential degree that allows for troops to be used to maintain order, not just on the government grounds but also in a broader capacity in Brasilia. Large plumes of black smoke billowed high into the air in front of the modernistic Congress building after protestors set tires on fire. Brazil's top court is investigating him for alleged obstruction of justice and involvement in passive corruption. It said the president had determined that using the country's National Force, an elite police entity, would not have been sufficient. One protestor was shot and wounded, police said.

Germany's Merkel says Paris climate accord is an 'essential' pact
Trump said on Twitter that he'll make an announcement on whether to stay in the climate accord at 3 p.m.in Washington. This is where its supporters reverse field and contend that it will be a global disaster if the USA leaves.

Jungmann said the protest had been "peaceful but descended into violence, vandalism, disrespect, attacks on state property, and threats against people".

"This mess, this mayhem is unacceptable", Jungmann said. "It's not right that public servants are paying this bill".

"The country is entirely polarised", Green said.

"When order is re-established, the decree will be revoked", the statement said.

Temer took over from Dilma Rousseff previous year after she was impeached over corruption allegations, but, as of last Thursday, is himself now being investigated for alleged corruption.

JBS shares lost one-third of their value on May 22 as investors anxious about legal and financial ramifications of the company's central role in Brazil's latest corruption scandal.

"If this government can not hold itself up, the armed forces will not hold up this government", said Sen. But the arrest adds to the pressure on the embattled president, who was formally accused by the attorney general last week of obstructing justice and corruption related to the sprawling graft schemes at major companies uncovered by the Lava Jato (Car Wash) investigation.

With Brazil deeply divided and a political crisis deepening, sessions in both houses of Congress became chaotic as lawmakers shouted one another down.

"Right now there is only one option, and your excellency can not run away from your responsibilities, the first thing that has to be done is to immediately form a commission to impeach Michel Temer", said lawmaker Glauber Braga.

And in an unrelated case that underlined the far-reaching impact of Brazil's ongoing anti-graft operation, the Supreme Court on Tuesday sentenced one of the country's most infamously corrupt and seemingly untouchable politicians to almost eight years in prison.
