SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL - An estimated 300 Military Police accompanied by police helicopters began forcibly removing student protesters from the University of São Paulo (USP) at 5:10AM this morning. Around sixty students have detained thus far.
USP students began occupying the Faculty of Philosophy, Letters and Science (FFLCH) building, which houses the university president's office, last Wednesday, November 1st.
The protest was sparked several days after a violent confrontation with police, reportedly during the arrest of three students for marijuana possession.
They had been demanding a reevaluation of university lawsuits against students . . .
