    Waving red flags and holding banners, protesters in São Paulo – which included members of left-wing parties – joined the rally dubbed “STOP BOLSONARO.”

    Demonstrator Dafne Sena said marginalised groups such as Indigenous people, women, LGBTQ+ and poor people were at risk under Bolsonaro’s government.Other protesters said the Brazilian President was a threat to democracy and was not managing the pandemic well.

    Scuffles erupted during a demonstration in Rio de Janeiro. Dozens of riot police were deployed to keep watch on the protesters who had gathered by the city’s iconic Copacabana Beach.

    When one woman was taken into custody and a man was spoken to by police for using a speaker at the demonstration, the protesters continued to demonstrate peacefully. Soon after, riot police were seen spraying tear gas at protesters and were filmed hitting Micaela Nascimento, a 33-year-old Black transgender woman who was shouting and demanding the release of the demonstrators.

    Later, the group marched towards the police unit where the two people in custody were later released.

    ‘STOP BOLSONARO’ protests were also held in other countries in Europe, including Austria, Switzerland, Germany and the U.K.

    Brazil has the second highest number of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus with more than 1,300,000 infected and at least 57,000 deaths, according to government figures.
