Brazilians urge profits from the oil industry be distributed fairly around country.

    Anger over Brazil's move to up oil stake

    Brazil's president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has proposed a law that would give the state-owned oil giant Petrobras a minimum 30 per cent stake in all future oil projects.
