Demonstrators parade large inflatable dolls depicting Brazil's former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in prison garb and current President Dilma Rousseff dressed as a thief.

The biggest rallies took place in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, where hundreds of thousands of people turned out to protest peacefully.

The embattled Rousseff is facing an impeachment challenge in congress over alleged fiscal mismanagement, the worst recession in decades, and a federal investigation into corruption at state-run oil giant Petrobras.

In a statement, Rousseff said: "The peaceful character of this Sunday's demonstrations shows the maturity of a country that knows how to co-exist with different opinions and knows how to secure respect to its laws and institutions."
