Dozens of demonstrators gathered in Sao Paulo’s Se square on Wednesday to protest against the security clampdown surrounding the World Cup. Activists were incensed by the extent of the powers ceded to football governing body FIFA, and the money spent on keeping Brazilians from upsetting foreign visitors.

Despite a large and well-armed police presence, the protest passed off peacefully with no arrests reported.
