Brazil: Protesters Take to Streets to Denounce Right-Wing Candidate Jair Bolsonaro

HeadlineOct 11, 2018

In Brazil, thousands of people took to the streets of São Paulo to protest against far-right-wing presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who won first place in Sunday’s presidential election. He’ll face a runoff against the second-place candidate, Fernando Haddad of the leftist Workers’ Party, on October 28. These are two of the protesters in São Paulo.

Alan Antunes: “We have the fascist threat that is Bolsonaro, and we have to position ourselves.”

Mariana Maximiliano: “I am very scared that there’s a chance that Bolsonaro will become president. Our mission is to make 'no' our answer, and I think we have 18 days to do it and try to solve this situation.”
