Of all the images from last week’s protests in Brazil, this one is particularly remarkable.
The speed at which that tear gas canister comes in is alarming, and is an important reminder of just what it means when police show up to fire tear gas at protesters. That the person was able to kick it away is no small feat; if they did so without seriously hurting their foot, that would be even more remarkable. Either way, it is scenes like this one that have certainly helped spur popular demonstrations and anger in Brazil in the last few days.
