ADDS TRANSLATION OF GRAFFITI - A statue is covered by graffiti left by protesters that reads in Portuguese "3.20 is robbery" outside City Hall in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Wednesday, June 19, 2013. The number refers to the new cost of public transportation. Beginning as protests against a bus and subway fare hike from from 3 reales to 3.20 reales, which is about 1.50 U.S. dollars, the demonstrations have quickly ballooned to include broad middle-class outrage over the failure of governments to provide basic services and ensure public safety, even as the country's economy modernizes and tax rates remain some of the highest in the world.
