Demonstrators have poured onto the streets in at least 12 locations across Brazil to express their rejection of the impeachment process against Rousseff.

Protesters poured onto the streets again on Tuesday in 12 states and the Federal District to express their support of President Dilma Rousseff and their rejection to what they call the anti-democratic impeachment of the head of state.

Brazil was thrown into political chaos Monday after the new leader of the lower house of Congress, Waldir Maranhao, announced his decision to annul the impeachment process only to begin a new one that would have included Vice President Michel Temer.

The protesters, who are led by social movements and labor unions, are reportedly blocking highways in at least one location, according to Brazilian newspaper Globo.

Demonstrators have also set up barricades torching tires and tree branches, the news outlet added.
