Brasilia: Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said on Monday her leftist government must talk to the people, a day after more than a million protesters hit the streets across the country.

"The government has an obligation to open a dialogue" and act with "humility," Rousseff told a news conference in Brasilia, in her first public appearance following the huge demonstrations in 83 cities Sunday.
