Over 100 THOUSAND Rally In Brazil For Bolsonaro Against Liberal Claims Of A Coup

Looks like the people of Brazil have had enough of their leftist President Luiz Ignacio Lula da Silva and his claims against former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

An estimated 185,000 people gathered to stand with Bolsonaro against the accusastions that were made regarding a ‘coup’.

The liberal government is claiming that an alleged coup occured on  January 8, 2023, when Bolsonaro’s supporters entered government buildings in the capital after he lost the presidential election.

Sure sounds familiar.

DW reports:

Thousands of supporters of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro gathered on the streets of Sao Paulo on Sunday to protest the allegations against him that could lead to his imprisonment.

Bolsonaro is being investigated over his role in an alleged coup attempt on January 8, 2023, when his supporters stormed government buildings in the capital Brasilia after the far-right lawmaker lost the presidential election to leftist Luiz Ignacio Lula da Silva at the end of 2022.

An estimated 185,000 showed up for the rally, according to independent observers, filling up the city’s Paulista Avenue.

What did Bolsonaro say during the rally?

At the rally, Bolsonaro spoke for 20 minutes, denying the charges that he planned a coup to stay in power after losing the election in October 2022.

“What is a coup? It is tanks on the streets, weapons, conspiracy. None of that happened in Brazil,” he said.

The far-right populist leader, who is often likened to former US President Donald Trump, acquired a more mellow tone than when he was in power and said, that he seeks “pacification to erase the past.”

He also called for amnesty for people who were jailed over their participation in the January 8 riot.
