Brazilian students shout anti-government slogans during protest against corruption in Brasilia.
Brazilian students shout anti-government slogans and throw water on police in front of the National Congress during a protest against corruption in Brasilia August 17, 2005. Thousands of left-wing militants demanded that President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva step down on Wednesday as new allegations of tax evasion by his ruling party added fuel to a graft scandal. Demonstrators marched through the capital in the first mass protest against Lula since allegations surfaced 11 weeks ago that the ruling Worker's Party bribed lawmakers to support legislation.
