SAO PAOLO, Brazil – US philosopher and gender theorist Judith Butler attracted scores of protesters to the Social Service of Commerce (SESC) Pompeia in Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city, when she gave a seminar on democracy on Tuesday.

Conservative protesters burnt an effigy of Butler before stamping on the charred remains.
