Brazilians and Brazilians from all states take to the streets this Saturday (2) in protest against the government of Jair Bolsonaro (no party). Check the times and locations of the acts in your city.
In addition to the president’s impeachment, the protesters are demanding respect for life and democracy, denouncing the rise in food prices, privatizations and the failure of policies to generate employment.
Brazil is about to complete the 600,000 deaths mark for covid-19. According to organizers of protests on Saturday, the number would have been much lower if Bolsonaro had defended social isolation and guaranteed conditions for workers to stay at home during the most critical period of the pandemic.
In opposition to the sanitary measures recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), Bolsonaro caused crowds, advertised ineffective medicines, minimized the risks of the coronavirus and discouraged vaccination and the use of masks
With 14.1 million unemployed, the country is facing one of the worst economic crises in its history. Bolsonaro is in 2nd place in the polls of voting intentions for the 2022 elections, behind former president Lula (PT).
