Biden said – humiliating situation
US President Joe Biden has also reacted to this Brazilian incident. The situation in Brazil was outrageous after supporters of far-right former President Jair Bolsonaro attacked the country’s Congress, Presidential Palace and Supreme Court, he said. In addition, Jake Sullivan, National Security Advisor to the US President, said that the United States condemns any attempt to undermine democracy in Brazil. President Biden is monitoring the situation closely and our support for Brazil’s democratic institutions is unwavering.
Protesters entered the Parliament-Rashtrapati Bhavan and the Supreme Court
Significantly, on Sunday, protesters broke police barricades and entered the Congress (Parliament House), the Presidential Palace and the Supreme Court to protest the swearing-in of Luiz Inacio Lula de Silva as President. These protesters wore green and yellow flag clothes. One of these groups climbed onto the Speaker’s chair and gathered there around him. In the video viral on social media, it is seen that the protesters are tampering with the mic by climbing on the speaker’s dias. A video showed a crowd outside pulling a policeman off his horse and pinning him to the ground. Some videos of the protesters are going viral on social media, showing rioters breaking doors and windows as they enter the Congress building. It is seen in the video that they simultaneously come inside and ransack the offices of the MPs. Also they tried to hoist a banner.
Bolsonaro dismissed the allegations
Bolsonaro also rejected accusations by Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula de Silva of inciting supporters to attack government buildings. The former president wrote in a tweet, “I categorically reject the allegations against me, which have been leveled against me by the current head of Brazil without any evidence.” Significantly, Bolsonaro had to face defeat in the presidential election of Brazil only last month. After this he moved to Florida, USA.
In his tweet, he said, “Peaceful demonstrations within the framework of law are part of democracy. However, infiltration and attempts to occupy government buildings, as happened today, in 2013 and 2017 under the Left government, are a violation of the law.” ” He said, “In my administration, I have always worked within the four lines of the Constitution. These lines were- respect for the law and its protection, democracy, transparency and our sacred freedom.”
