Brazilians Protest and Win; Californians Cross Borders and Wail; Obama Continues to Wobble Mass protests by hundreds of thousands in Brazil force a rollback on public transportation hikes, but the battle’s only just begun, says the student-led movement. The right-leaning Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS), an anti-immigration-reform group, has mounted a media campaign in Florida targeting U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

Meanwhile, President Obama continues to wobble on critical issues, chief among them the economy.
