Hundreds of Bolsonaro supporters storm the Capitol

Yesterday in Brazil, groups shouting slogans demanding the intervention of the army broke through a police barrier and entered the building of the National Congress.

The police, who intervened with tear gas to disperse the far-right pro-Bolsonaro demonstrators, were later unable to stop the groups from entering the Presidential Palace and the Supreme Court building.

Supporters of former President Bolsonaro who stormed the National Congress and the Presidential Palace were removed from these buildings by security forces and brought under control.

Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula called these actions “vandalism and fascism” and said that the people who should be responsible for security in Brazil are not doing their jobs.

Lula interrupted her program in the state of São Paulo and returned to the capital Brasilia when activists broke into government buildings.
