Thousands have taken to the streets in towns and cities across Brazil to protest against the country’s president Jair Bolsonaro.

Mr Bolsonaro is currently falling behind in opinion polls.

Many Brazilians are upset at the president’s handling of the pandemic, of which more than 600,000 people have died.
