Brazil: Protesters call for President Temer to resign
Brazilians staged demonstrations calling for President Michel Temer to step down after the Supreme Court opened an investigation into allegations he endorsed the payment of hush money to a jailed former lawmaker.
Unions, political parties and activists called for Brazilians to come out on the streets and demand Temer step down.
Protests in major cities, however, were smaller than expected.
