The group FotoProtestoSP attempted to have an art intervention on the streets of Sao Paulo to keep the memories of the wave of protests in Brazil fresh in their minds. Remember, remember, the 5th of November.

Thing is, the police wasn’t happy about it and after 2 hours of work the photographers and the people helping them with the set up were taken to the nearest precinct to figure out what kind of permit they needed to make it happen. Don’t worry, this time no one lost an eye.
