President Dilma Rousseff, a former leftist guerrilla who was imprisoned and tortured during the dictatorship, hailed the protests, even though her government has been a prime target of demonstrators' frustrations.

SAO PAULO, Brazil Thousands of demonstrators flooded a square in Brazil's economic hub, Sao Paulo, on Tuesday evening for the latest in a historic wave of protests against the shoddy state of public transit, schools and other public services in this booming South American giant.

Attorney Agatha Rossi de Paula, who attended the latest protest in Sao Paulo along with her mother, called Brazil's fiscal priorities "an embarrassment."

Gilberto Carvalho, Rousseff's general secretary, said the protests reflect the new demands of a richer Brazil.

A November report from the government raised to $13.3 billion the projected cost of stadiums, airport renovations and other projects for the World Cup. City, state and other local governments are spending more than $12 billion on projects for the Olympics in Rio. Nearly $500 million was spent to renovate Maracana stadium in Rio for the World Cup even though the venue already went through a significant face lift before the 2007 Pan American Games.

Although Brazilian demonstrations in recent years generally had tended to attract small numbers of politicized participants, the Nike Roshe Run Maroon Womens latest mobilizations have united huge crowds around a central lament: The government provides woeful public sector even as the economy is modernizing and growing.

Sparked earlier this month by a 10 cent hike in bus and subway fares and organized via social media, the nationwide protests are giving voice to growing discontent over the gap between Brazil's high tax burden and the low quality of public infrastructure, echoing similar mobilizations in Turkey, Greece and other parts of the globe where weariness with governments has exploded in the streets.

"Brazil today woke up stronger," she was quoted as saying in a statement released by her office.

The Brazilian Tax Planning Institute think tank found the country's tax burden in 2011 stood at 36 per cent of gross domestic product, ranking it 12th among the 30 countries with the world's highest tax burdens.

She didn't propose any concrete answers to protesters' demands. Some cities have lowered bus fares seeking to quell outrage, so far without any apparent effect.

Sao Paulo Mayor Fernando Haddad said Tuesday that he would try to juggle the municipal budget in order to roll back the fare hikes. The group that has helped organize the protest in Sao Paulo pledged to continue until prices are lowered.

Many protesting in Brazil's streets hail from the country's growing middle class, which government figures show has ballooned by some 40 million over the past decade amid a commodities driven economic boom.

A cyber attack knocked the government's official World Cup site offline, and the Twitter feed for Brazil's Anonymous hackers group posted links to a host of other government websites whose content had been replaced by a screen calling on citizens to come out to the streets.

On Tuesday, an estimated 50,000 people marched on Sao Paulo's City Hall building, where a small radical group clashed with police as they attempted to force their way in and set a vehicle and other objects alight. Another protest sprang up in the working class Rio de Janeiro suburb of Sao Goncalo.

Police and military had spent the past year pacifying hillside slums in Rio to prepare for the events, even as the grievances were apparently growing among the country's middle class.

An organization advocating for lower bus fares initiated the protesting last week, but demonstrations have since ballooned with no centralized leadership. Groups of Brazilians also staged small protests Tuesday in other countries, including Portugal, Spain and Denmark.

"The protests are gaining force each day, there is a tremendous energy that cannot be ignored," Barp said as demonstrators poured into the central plaza, which was aflutter with banners and echoing with chanted slogans. "All Brazilians are fed up with the government and the poor services we receive, everyone is ready to fight for a change."

"We just want what we paid in taxes back, through health care, education and transportation," said the 34 year old. "We want the police to protect us, to help the people on the streets who have ended up with no job and no money."

Bruno Barp, a 23 year old law student at Tuesday's demonstration in Sao Paulo, said he had high hopes for the growing movement.

The protests have raised questions about the country's readiness to host the coming high profile events including a papal visit to Rio and rural Sao Paulo next month. Brazil is playing host this week to the Confederations Cup, which is seen as a warm Nike Roshe Run Men Black

They say they've lost patience with endemic problems such as government corruption and inefficiency. They're also slamming Brazil's government for spending billions of dollars to host next year's World Cup soccer tournament and the 2016 Olympics, while leaving other needs unmet.

After an estimated turnout of 240,000 people in 10 cities Monday, the protests are turning into the most significant in Brazil since the end of the country's 1964 85 military dictatorship, when crowds rallied to demand the return of democracy.

Yet public services such as schools are in sorry shape. The Organization for Economic Co operation and Development found in a 2009 educational survey that literacy and math skills of Brazilian 15 year olds ranked 53rd out of 65 countries, behind nations such as Bulgaria, Mexico, Turkey, Trinidad and Tobago, and Romania.

Vandalism and violent clashes with police similarly marred the end of Monday's mostly peaceful march in Rio, which left the city's downtown stinking of tear gas. That march attracted some 100,000 people, ending with a small splinter group doing an estimated $1 million in damage Nike Roshe Hyperfuse

Different groups of protesters faced off, one chanting "peace, peace" while trying to form a human cordon to protect the building, the other trying to clamber up metal poles to get inside. At one point, one person tried to seize a metal barrier from another who was trying to use it to smash Roshe Run For Women

Tuesday's march in Sao Paulo started out peacefully but turned nasty outside City Hall when a small group lashed out at police and tried to invade the building.

"Those who took to the streets delivered a message to society as a whole and most of all to levels of government," Rousseff said. "The massive size of yesterday's protests proves the energy of our democracy, the force of the voice of the street and the civility of our population."
