“We are out of Facebook”. Image from the video clip

“I turned Facebook off / to show how to be tough / There is so much stuff / that one poster is not enough”. This is the translation of the chorus of the song “Brasil em Cartaz” (Brazil in Posters), a kind of collective song and video clip made ​​from phrases on posters on display during the protests in Brazil in this month of June.

The video clip with this song has been posted on YouTube, and free downloadable MP3 version is also available. The collaborative video also shows a roundup of images shared on social media about what was initially called the Vinegar Revolt. See below a version with English subtitles.
