'No to dictatorship': 成千上万的巴西人集会反对博尔索纳罗——视频

Brazilians staged protests against President Jair Bolsonaro’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic in at least 200 周六全国城镇, carrying signs such as ‘Out with Bolsonaroand ‘Impeachment now’.

Bolsonaro’s popularity has plummeted during the coronavirus crisis, which has killed more than 450,000 Brazilians as the far-right leader played down its severity, dismissed mask wearing and cast doubt on the importance of vaccines.

Organised by leftist political parties, unions and student associations, Saturday’s protests in the capital, Brasilia, and in Rio de Janeiro were peaceful but in the north-eastern city of Recife, police threw teargas and shot rubber bullets.
