How will Bolsonaro face public anger in Brazil? | Inside Story

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “How will Bolsonaro face public anger in Brazil? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

Brazil’s president is under pressure again.

During the course of this year, Jair Bolsonaro managed to unite left-wing parties, trade unions and social organizations as they tried to get him impeached.

He is mainly accused of mishandling the pandemic – and possibly being responsible for the deaths of thousands of people.

Brazilians have also accused him of corruption, a disregard for the environment and policies they say are fueling the economic crisis.

Bolsonaro announced a government reshuffle, but that’s only angered more people who say the president is a threat to democracy.

So, who’s likely to win this battle?
