Brazilian government troops cracked down Sunday on a protest encampment named "Out Temer" taking place near the house of coup-imposed President Michel Temer in Sao Paulo, reported teleSUR correspondent, Nacho Lemus.

In photos that were spread on social media, demonstrators were seen forcibly evicted. Although the aim of the march was to reach Temer's residence to demand the return of the democratically-elected President Dilma Rousseff, security forces set up a cordon 186 miles away that prevented their arrival.

Lemus had reported earlier that Brazilian police had threatened to disperse the demonstrators.
The protest was attended by about 30,000 Brazilians and was called to protest the government of Michel Temer and measures taken during the first week of its management.
