In a furious reaction to Jair Bolsonaro’s supporters storming Congress, tens of thousands of Brazilians participated in pro-democracy protests. Crowds in So Paulo, the biggest city in the nation, chanted, “Mr. Bolsonaro must go to prison.”
Due to Sunday’s riots in the nation’s capital, Brasilia, about 1,500 people have been detained. They occurred a week after President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva took office following Brazil’s divisive election in October.
During an evening visit on Monday, the 77-year-old new leader, better known as Lula, toured the damaged Congress, presidential mansion, and Supreme Court buildings with the nation’s governors. He denounced the “terrorist acts” and vowed to punish those responsibly.
