Various left-wing groups and members of the Somos Democracia (We Are Democracy) group gathered in Sao Paulo on Sunday to protest against Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro under the slogan “Stop Bolsonaro.”
Demonstrators were seen gathering at Sao Paulo’s at Paulista Avenue holding signs against Bolsonaro, under strong police presence. The protest was joined by activists of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement voicing their anger against racism and police brutality.
Bolsonaro has been facing a growing backlash over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Brazil is the second worst-hit country by the crisis worldwide after the US with more than 1,3 million cases and over 57,600 deaths related to the virus, according to data compiled by John Hopkins University.
