Are the prostets really going somewhere?

There are many protests occuring in Brazil and Turkey. They use of peaceful manners, but are repressed by a fiercely violent police.

The cause goes against a blatantly corrupt government.
It took a lot of time to finally happen and is a breath of fresh air for many brazilians and turkishes. But, do you think it will concretize?


Here are some videos that clearly explain what's going on:

    Jun 18 2013: Theres only one effective solution to these problems in my opinion. Compromise between the government and protestors on the issues. Once it gets violent both sides lose the ability to act rationally and both have a right to defend their interests.
    Protests can't be about violence, if they are they lose credibility don't you think?
