Sao Paulo, Brazil CNN —  

Sao Paulo is the scene of another night of protests in Brazil, with demonstrators calling for a government more responsive to Brazilians’ needs.

Protests have been staged in major cities across the country, but Sao Paulo was the focal point of Tuesday’s marches.

The thousands who gathered were mostly peaceful, and the atmosphere was almost festive. But at least one small group unsuccessfully tried to force their way into a municipal building.

Police for the most part stood back, but repelled those who tried to enter the government building by bashing its windows with police barriers.
