More outrage against an anti-Islam film-- but this demonstration in Sao Paulo, Brazil was peaceful, with Christian and Jewish supporters marching along side Muslims.

Some 500 people gathered near the city's Shiite mosque-- holding posters and chanting in Arabic.

Organizers say people from all religions are against the film.

(SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) PROTEST ORGANISER, HASSAN GHARIB, SAYING:

"Unfortunately, this film "Innocence of Muslims", which they produced to incite a dispute between Muslims and Christians, is unacceptable because the Muslims and the Christians are brothers, we come from the same source."

Some demonstrations over the U.S-made film, which Muslims say insults Prophet Mohammad, have been violent and deadly.

These protesters in Pakistan set movie theatres on fire, clashed with police, and burned an effigy of US President Barack Obama.

At least 47 people have been killed in protests linked to the film.
